dc.description.abstract Due to inconsistencies and the sometimes-questionable methods in which [human trafficking] estimates are obtained, some scholars have recommended avoiding using any existing prevalence estimates to quantify the problem—at least in reference to sex trafficking of minors (Finkelhor, Vaquerano, & Stranski, 2017). However, as awareness in this area has increased, there has been a movement to gather more empirical data to inform our knowledge base. Thus, the current study seeks to extend prior research to estimate the prevalence of minors and young adults who are known victims and at-risk for trafficking in Ohio....This study seeks to calculate more precise estimates of known victims and at-risk individuals who are minors or young adults. To extend prior literature, the current study focused on integrating existing agency records and reports of human trafficking events. The use and integration of state and local data is a first step in calculating more precise estimates of known victims and at-risk individuals who are vulnerable to trafficking in Ohio.To that end, we consider the typology of different data sources to contextualize these prevalence estimates. This report outlines our study findings including (1) the type of information available to measure human trafficking in Ohio, (2) estimates of known human trafficking victims and at-risk individuals in Ohio, (3) lessons learned regarding current capabilities and capacities to estimate human trafficking victimization, and (4) recommendations for future prevalence research, intervention efforts,and policy considerations.
