Manual on Child Labour Rapid Assessment Methodology
Rapid Accessment (RA) is a primarily qualitative research method that allows researchers, academics, and other practitioners to conduct data collection in a cost effective manner over a shorter time span. Techniques such as interviews and field observation are discussed, as well as how RA can enrich quantitative methods such as household surveys. This particular manual discusses how this method could be used in research on child labourers and child trafficking victims, with specific case studies from countries such as El Salvador and Thailand. This manual provides detailed explanations on not only how to use the methodology, but how to apply or disseminate RA findings once the research is completed. Publication developed by the Statistical Information and Monitoring Programme on Child Labour (SIMPOC).
