This indicator conveys the proportion of children (defined as persons aged 5 to 17) involved in child labour, as well as the proportion of children involved in employment and the proportion of children involved in hazardous work. Children in employment include all those children who are engaged in any activity falling within the System of National Accounts' production boundary. Child labour is a subgroup of child employment, and it refers to children engaged in prohibited work or in types of work that should be eliminated given that they are injurious, negative or socially or morally undesirable according to national and international standards. More specifically, child labour comprises all children engaged in hazardous work, all children engaged in worst forms of child labour other than hazardous work, and employment below the minimum working age, excluding, where applicable, light work performed by children over the age of 13.
