Incidence of child labor in datasets for England and Italy is based on the percentage of children (aged 10-14) recorded as working at least one hour of work per week (thus defined as "children in employment"). For US data, this range extends only from 10-13 year olds. Data for the global level is based on the definition of full-time child labor (which excludes children participating in light part-time work). World ILO-EPEAP data from 1950-1995 is based on children aged 10-14. World ILO-IPEC data from 2000-2012 broadens this definition to those aged 5-17.
