Domestic Work Policy Brief no. 4

Global and regional estimates on domestic workers

This document is part of a series of briefs on issues and approaches to promoting decent work for domestic workers.

In response to the lack of robust statistical figures, this policy brief presents new minimum global and regional estimates on the number of domestic workers. They are based on data drawn exclusively from official statistics, mainly labour force surveys and population censuses, covering a total of 117 countries and territories.
