Child labor is a distressing issue. There have been many attempts to estimate its magnitude. It is attempted here to develop an estimator to assess the magnitude of this issue using a (Horvitz and Thompson in J Am Stat Assoc 47(260):663–685, 1952) type of estimator where weights are calculated on the basis of poverty and illiteracy to increase the sampling efficiency. The estimator is used to assess the magnitude of child labor in Bahawalpur division. Subsequent different statistical properties of this estimator, like its unbiasedness, variance, probability distribution, confidence intervals are also developed for its study from different angles.
