This study examines the interrelationship of child labour and informality in 22 sub-Saharan countries.
The purpose of this study is to better understand the interrelationship of child labour and informality in sub-Saharan Africa and how to achieve the goals envisioned in Recommendation No. 204.
This study examines patterns in child labour, child employment and informality for 22 sub-Saharan countries using household survey data that interviews 197,418 children aged 10–17 and represents 78.2 million children. It attempts to understand descriptively the patterns in child labour, child employment and informality that are present in the raw survey data. This type of descriptive analysis appears missing in the literature, and it is hoped that the study will help frame the subsequent causal studies that will examine different ways to alter the patterns documented herein.
