This Manual complements the earlier volume on Sampling for household-based surveys of child labour brought out by within the framework of the ILO-IPEC Statistical Information and Monitoring Programme on Child Labour (SIMPOC) and contributes to survey methodology that goes beyond the particular subject of child labour. Thus, anyone interested in issues and practical solutions to problems such as sampling from imperfect frames or sampling difficult populations would benefit from the contents of this Manual.

The Ghana Living Standards Survey (GLSS) 2013 (round sixth) (GLSS6) is a nation-wide household survey conducted between 18 October 2012 and 17 October 2013. It collected information on the demographic characteristics of the population, their education, health, employment and time use, migration, housing conditions and household agriculture, among others. Like the previous rounds of GLSS, the GLSS6 had a specific Labour Force Module which was expanded to include a section on child labour. This report focuses on Child Labour in Ghana and is based on the results obtained from the implementation of the GLSS6.

This Manual was produced by ILO-IPEC and GAWU to serve as an essential training tool for workers in the rural communities, especially cocoa farmers, to promote and ensure safety at the work place. Collaboration between workers’ and employers’ organizations is one of the most effective strategies to ensure safe practices at work places. Hopefully the production of this Manual will go a long way to help the community and farmers as well as agriculture extension officers in their training efforts.
