Leveraging Researcher-Practitioner Partnerships to Improve Human Trafficking Prevalence Studies

Event Dates

How widespread is the problem of human trafficking in the United States? Understanding the scope of human trafficking prevalence is a priority for policymakers, law enforcement, researchers, and community-based practitioners. However, it can be difficult to accurately measure.

This presentation will provide a brief overview of the strategies used to measure the prevalence of human trafficking, the importance of the engagement of community-based agency participation in this work, and a discussion of the benefits of taking a researcher-practitioner approach to prevalence research.

The presenters for this presentation are currently collaborating on study to measure the prevalence of sex trafficking among adults in Sacramento County, California.
