What does the data tell us, if available? Protection of children from all forms of violence is a fundamental right guaranteed by the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and other international human rights treaties and standards. Yet, every year, one billion children across the globe experience violence.
The data collected from 62 countries shows that about 80 per cent of children experienced some form of violent punishment across this period. A meta study of prevalence of sexual abuse across 55 studies from 24 countries found figures ranging from 8 to 31 per cent among girls, and from 3 to 17 per cent among boys.
A recent report show that 28 per cent of detected trafficking victims worldwide are children. In regions such as Sub-Saharan Africa and Central America and the Caribbean, children comprise 62 and 64 per cent of victims, respectively.
Three indicators have been included in the global indicators framework to monitor target These indicators address three forms of violence against children: Some DHS and other national household surveys have also collected the standard or modified versions of the MICS child discipline module.
Data on sexual violence have been collected through a number of data collection tools and mechanisms, including household surveys such as DHS, that have produced comparable data in some 50 low and middle-income countries since the late s.
Fully comparable data are currently available for approximately 43 countries. Since data have been available for approximately countries, disaggregated by age, sex, and forms of exploitation.
The availability of comparable data on certain forms of violence against children has significantly increased in recent years — especially in measuring physical and sexual violence. Yet many challenges remain. Internationally agreed standards for measuring and producing statistics are still lacking.
Existing data tend to be inconsistent in terms of agreed definitions of violence, their scope, coverage, frequency, and quality — thus making comparisons across countries difficult. It is likely that data collected show an underestimation of the problem. How are the data being used?
The data collected through MICS and DHS is currently being used as a basis for policy decisions and programme interventions, and to influence public opinion on the situation of children and women around the world. Data collected through other instruments, such as Violence against Children Surveys carried out under the auspices of the Together for Girls Initiativeare being used to develop national action plans to end violence against children.
