* Because of extremely limited information, a determination was made that USDOL would publish full reports on 9 countries and 18 territories, including the country or territory covered here, once every 5 years. For this reason, this report includes shortened profiles for these countries and territories, containing only new information published during the reporting period. For extended profiles on these countries and territories, please see The Department of Labor's 2005 Findings on the Worst Forms of Child Labor. The next extended profiles on these countries and territories should appear in The Department of Labor's 2010 Findings on the Worst Forms of Child Labor.
