7 Methodology This study was carried out mainly through a desk-based review of literature published on the carpet sector. Little information were obtained by the author during his field visit to Uttar Pradesh and through discussions held with international agencies (located in New Delhi) in Spring 2002. Most of the literature used in this research was gathered by the ILO and the UNICEF Offices in Delhi, as well as by the GNLI in Noida (Uttar Pradesh). This work also refers diffusely on data and information provided by the 1991 Census of India (Census, hereafter), which estimates the existence of about 12 million working children in the country. Unfortunately, it was not possible to use more recent governmental data on child labour because of the delay of the Indian government in publishing accurate information from the 2001 Census. Just the fact that the 1991 Census data on age wise work participation was made public only in 1997 - nearly six years after the Census was conducted - shows the “urgency” and the “interest” in dealing with the issue of child labour on the part of the Indian government. Conceptual and methodological limitations in governmental data collection have even created a category of children who are neither at school nor at work. According to many studies, a large sub-set of these deprived children – termed as “nowhere children” – consists of over 90 million (Burra, 1995; Mishra, 2000). Therefore, combining together child labourers and “nowhere children”, the number of under 14 years old who ought to have received priority attention in 1991 stand at about 100 million, which is almost 50 per cent of the total child population in India.
