*Each State Summary’s findings derived from data the Human Trafficking Institute compiled for the 2019 Federal Human Trafficking Report. Findings are not a prevalence estimate of trafficking in the state but instead serve as an objective summary of federal efforts to address human trafficking in that state. The Report does not capture data from state prosecutions, state civil suits, or unreported human trafficking cases.
