Decent Work Indicators:
Towards better Statistics on Forced Labour and Human Trafficking
Statistics are the ideas and techniques that can be used to convert numbers into useful information. Statistics on forced labour and human trafficking are essential for at least two reasons. First, they provide more objective information. Humans cannot, with their
own eyes and ears, perceive more than a small, unrandom sample of any human state of affairs. Secondly, and even more importantly, good statistics are needed to formulate good policies and
monitor progress towards the objective of decent work for all.
