Proportion and number of children aged 5-17 years engaged in child labour, by sex and age


Child labor includes both ordinary pay and household work. Statistics Denmark does not have information on household work. Out of the total number of 5-17 year olds in Denmark (855,982) at the end of November 2018, 1,114 (0.1 per cent) had wage work with a number of hours as specified in the definition of the indicator. 507 of them are in the age group 5-11 years, where a large proportion have held jobs in the cultural professions (singing, dancing, acting or background acting work).
