Child Labor - Montenegro

The Child Labor – Montenegro measure includes 23 items from the 2013 Montenegro and Montenegro Roma Settlements Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS) Household Questionnaire. The items ask household members about the involvement of children in the household in employment, business, and household activities. MICS is an international household survey initiative designed to collect data on the global situation of children and women. Navigational aspects (i.e., skip-out patterns) have not been included on this page but can be viewed on the original questionnaire.
