The objective of the Task Force is to prepare guidance to improve the availability, quality, and comparability of statistics on children, adolescents, and youth and to work towards the goal of recommendations for more consistent and harmonized definitions, methodologies, and approaches across the countries participating in the Conference of European Statisticians.
The Task Force will work in two phases, beginning with an overview of the current situation concerning definitions, standards, and methods used in the statistics on children, adolescents, and youth, and then addressing three focus areas in more detail:
- Violence against children, adolescents, and youth;
- Children and adolescents in institutional care;
- Children, adolescents and youth with disabilities.
