International News Coverage of Human Trafficking Arrests and Prosecutions: A Content Analytic Study
Unformatted Document Text:  RESULTS Initial findings are presented in three areas of investigation in the 191 cases of human trafficking acts available for this study. These three areas consist of characteristics of the human trafficking act, offender characteristics and possible motives, and trafficked individual characteristics and possible motives. Descriptive statistics provided in this study are based on the total number of cases that met the criteria for coding 29 . The 191 unique incidents captured by this study were all coded on some level. For example, if an article provided the age of the trafficker but did not provide the country of origination of the trafficked individual, coding would occur for the age attribute but not the country of origination—this attribute value would remain “unassigned”. I made this coding decision because my sample size would have been significantly smaller (less than 20) had I only coded articles that contained information regarding all attributes. The percentages of applicable cases versus those that could not be analyzed because of failure to meet coding criteria are provided in the Appendix (Table 20). Characteristics of the human trafficking act This study analyzes 191 unique incidents of human trafficking. The level of organization of the trafficking incident could not be determined for 11% (n=22) of 29 Articles met the criteria for coding if they specifically addressed an incident of human trafficking resulting in an arrest and/or prosecution. 44

Initial findings are presented in three areas of investigation in the 191 
cases of human trafficking acts available for this study.  These three areas 
consist of characteristics of the human trafficking act, offender characteristics 
and possible motives, and trafficked individual characteristics and possible 
motives.  Descriptive statistics provided in this study are based on the total 
number of cases that met the criteria for coding
.  The 191 unique incidents 
captured by this study were all coded on some level.  For example, if an article 
provided the age of the trafficker but did not provide the country of origination of 
the trafficked individual, coding would occur for the age attribute but not the 
country of origination—this attribute value would remain “unassigned”.  I made 
this coding decision because my sample size would have been significantly 
smaller (less than 20) had I only coded articles that contained information 
regarding all attributes.  The percentages of applicable cases versus those that 
could not be analyzed because of failure to meet coding criteria are provided in 
the Appendix (Table 20).
Characteristics of the human trafficking act
This study analyzes 191 unique incidents of human trafficking. The level of 
organization of the trafficking incident could not be determined for 11% (n=22) of 
 Articles met the criteria for coding if they specifically addressed an incident of human 
trafficking resulting in an arrest and/or prosecution.
