A project by UNICEF & Domestic Data Streamers
The Data, Research and Policy division from UNICEF and Domestic Data Streamers have been working together to transform the lack of data into a tangible experience, shedding light on the current situation and on the vital information we are missing today.
Below, you can find nine examples of situations in which we are missing information. But it will only be until we have more data, that we will be able to begin solving those problems.
We still don’t know how many children are forced to work under the worst forms of child labour including slavery, trafficking and prostitution.
We don’t know how many children around the world are recruited and used by armed forces and groups in conflict.
Only about one in every three countries have the minimum quality data in child mortality.
We know how many children attend to school and how many do not. But do we know how many are actually learning?
We lack critical international figures on refugee child health and education.
One in three countries do not have official statistics about child poverty.
Since 2010, only half of all countries have data about mothers giving birth by the age of 18.
One in two countries around the world lack recent data on overweight children.
In most countries we still don’t know if the water is really safe to drink.
The Time Machine is an experience that aims to make the world leaders and other participants of the General Assembly, look back to their own childhood and understand how they can change the childhood of millions of children today.

It is in our hands to create a world where every child has an equal chance of being heard and seen. Children are the future, but the future is bleak if the present is neglected. And they do not count if they are not counted.
