Measuring the educational impact of child labour: Indicators available from common household survey instruments
AbstractUnderstanding the interplay between education and child labour is critical to achieving both EFA and child labour elimination goals. This note forms part of UCW broader efforts towards improving this understanding. It elaborates an expanded list of education indicators available from common household survey instruments that can be used for assessing the educational impact of child labour. These indicators cover not only school attendance but also school progression and survival, and therefore extend beyond the information on child labour and education typically provided in the research literature to date.
