Scope:

The study emphasises that although it is expected that child labour will be eliminated soon, there still is a huge amount of child labourers in the developing countries. The results from a survey conducted in 1979 was compared with the new ones and the dimensions of child labour in the non-agricultural sector is discussed. The main sectors that children are employed, the labour volumes in our industry, child labour in small scale enterprises and data about the volume of child labour in our country is given. Quantitative analysis are given a more importance as there are new recomendations on the estimations of the total number of child labour.

An Excerpt from the Article:

There might also be misinformation in other sectors where children are employed apart from the industrial ones such as domestic, service, hotels, restaurants, trade, wholesale, retail sectors. If it is considered that the amount of missing child labourers as a ratio is the same in other sectors, the number of children employed under the age of 15 in the non-agricultural sector would be 431.837 rather than the number given as the result of 1979 General Population Census which is only 118.206. If the ones that are looking for vacant places are added this number would rise to 447.373. And if this number is added to the economically active labour force in the whole manifacturing sector, we would get 1.601.431. And the ratio of economically active children under the age 15 to the whole labour force would be %27 rather than %5. (p.112)
