Posted October 07, 2018 08:21:06 For the first time, a national database has been created that will provide more precise information about who is being trafficked in the U.S. Every year, federal officials issue a list of all human trafficking cases in which someone is the victim of sexual or physical abuse.
But that information is hard to track, and it is often hard to determine who is the perpetrator or victim.
According to a new report by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC), it is even more difficult to track who is trafficked to the U of S because the U has no central registry of trafficking victims.
The NCMEC report found that while the U had a federal trafficking hotline, it has a central database of trafficked individuals.
And, the report notes, the U lacks an information infrastructure that could help people find victims of trafficking.
In the meantime, the federal government is working on new laws and programs to help victims of human trafficking.
To put the U’s data on its shoulders, the NCMec team created a database of people who were trafficked for sex in the United States between December 2013 and August 2019.
“In this study, we used data from the National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS) and the National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS), as well as information on sex trafficking offenses that occurred in the jurisdiction where the victim resided, for a total of 1,200 individuals,” the report reads.
It’s the first national database of the kinds of victims the NCJ found were not identified on the federal list of trafficking cases.
The report states that the data includes both people trafficked by force and those trafficked without coercion.
The researchers said the database includes data on the victims’ race, ethnicity, gender, religion, nationality, disability status, income, household size, education level, and household size of the victims.
A person is classified as trafficked if they were forced to engage in sexual activity with someone, were forced into a commercial sex act, or were subjected to a physical or psychological condition.
The U. S. does not have a federal sex trafficking registry, so the NCMA has collected and analyzed this data to determine the actual number of trafficking-related victims, which the researchers say is important because the numbers do not match the actual numbers.
“Although the NCMIX (National Missing and Unidentified Persons Exclusion and Tracking System) is the most accurate source of data on human trafficking in the country, its data is subject to a variety of sources of error, including the lack of a national system to track trafficking cases, the possibility that trafficking cases may have been removed from the system because of lack of data, and the lack to know if a person is a trafficking victim,” the NCMD said.
According the NCMC report, the victims of sex trafficking are typically younger and less affluent than the U population.
They are also more likely to be immigrants, students, or low-income.
It also noted that, although the majority of trafficker victims are female, men are more likely than women to be victims of sexual abuse, as are victims of domestic violence.
The authors say the NCMFHS data does not take into account the number of traffickers who were victims of physical or emotional abuse.
The victims of rape and trafficking are less likely to report the crime, the study notes, and “victims of trafficking are also less likely than victims of other types of violence to report sexual violence.”
The study also found that the most common types of trafficking perpetrators were foreign nationals and people from developing countries.
It notes that foreign nationals were more likely victims of both trafficking and rape than U citizens.
According this NCMEO report, about 1 in 5 trafficking victims in the past year had been sexually exploited, and they are less than 10 percent of all trafficked people in the US.
“These findings suggest that the U is a place where trafficking victims are not often recognized and the majority are not well-represented,” the researchers wrote.
The study found that many trafficked victims were victims who were forced by their employers to engage and participate in sex work.
“For victims of forced prostitution, this work often includes the threat of physical harm or death,” the study says.
But, it added, “there is also a heightened risk of physical injury and sexual violence, as well.”
According to the report, more than half of traffick victims in a year were female.
The research team also found the most commonly trafficked sex workers were younger, in the 30s, and were not particularly affluent.
The group also found they were more than twice as likely to have experienced abuse by someone who was a family member or friend.
About half of the sex workers surveyed said they had experienced physical, sexual, or emotional violence, and one-third had experienced trafficking-type abuse, including being forced to
