Tanzania National Child Labour Survey 2014 (published on Feb,2016)

The Government through the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS)  has made efforts to produce information on the activities of working children through various surveys. Among the efforts made it is worth highlighting the child labour modules embedded in the Integrated Labour Force Surveys conducted in 2000/2001, 2006 and in 2014.

According to the recent survey, about 29 percent of children aged 5–17 years are engaged in some form of child labour in various economic sectors, including agriculture, domestic work, fishing, and mining industries. The findings from this survey help in formulating policies

and programmes to eliminate and prevent child labour.
