The KidsRights Index is an annual global index that ranks countries according to five dimensions of children’s rights: the rights to life, health, education, protection, and an enabling environment for children’s rights. The Index is maintained by the Erasmus University Rotterdam, Erasmus School of Economics, and the International Institute of Social Studies.

UNICEF’s Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey Program (MICS) is an international household survey initiative to monitor the situation of children and women. MICS data is collected in cooperation with national statistical offices, but uses the same methodology around the world, and is thus internationally comparable. Survey questions cover health, education, water and sanitation, poverty, parenting, and demographics. UNICEF also maintains the Children’s Rights and Business Atlas, a risk assessment tool to help businesses identify potential harms to children’s rights in 198 countries.

UNESCO maintains data on education participation and investment, and the ILO’s International Programme on the Elimination of Child Labour hosts country surveys.
