Table 1: GNA results from 1990-2008 for all search taglines
The advanced search for human trafficking arrest [-drug –narcotic – 
cocaine] yielded 9,330 articles from 1990 to 2008,
 of which 876 occurred during 
the January to June interval in the year 2007; of the 876 articles, 458 were 
collected (See Table 2).   The primary reasons for the discrepancy between 
articles retrieved by the search engine (876) and articles actually collected (458) 
were: 1) some articles were physically archived and unavailable to me for on-line 
reading; 2) some articles were available for viewing by purchase, which I was 
unable to do; and 3) some articles did not address human trafficking and were

   HT, ST, and HS are abbreviations for human trafficking, sex trafficking, and human

  This number can vary depending on additional articles added or removed from archived news
