Macro-Quantitative Approach to Studying Human Trafficking for Sexual Exploitation: Taking a Global Snapshot

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The purpose of this research was to address the issue of trafficking for sexual exploitation by using macro-quantitative analysis to identify the characteristics of source and destination countries across the globe. Data on a range of variables were compiled from national indicator databases developed by intergovernmental organizations, such as the United Nations, the World Bank, and similar agencies. The trafficking status of each country was determined based on ratings developed by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (2006) through content analysis of third sources. Data were analyzed separately for source and for destination country status using logistic regression analysis as well as different visual representations of the data. Results indicate that low GDP and negative Population Growth were good predictors of a county’s status as a source country, while country’s status as an immigration country and high Human Development Indicators Index values were associated with country’s status as a destination country. Benefits and drawbacks of macro-quantitative approach to comparative research and limitations of the macro-quantitative methodology in the study of human trafficking will be discussed, along with strategies that address some of the main critiques of this methodology.
