Fighting Child Labor with Open Data

The U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of International Labor Affairs (ILAB) has produced an app called “Sweat & Toil” to raise awareness about child labor, forced labor, and human trafficking around the world, and it has made its data publicly available to encourage others to develop useful apps. Sweat and Toil uses 2014 data from three ILAB reports—Findings on the Worst Forms of Child Labor, List of Goods Produced by Child Labor or Forced Labor, and List of Products Produced by Forced or Indentured Child Labor—and is available via an open application programming interface.

Get the data. *

* To access the data, you must create a developer account with the Department of Labor.
