It may be the 21st century, but modern slavery—including labor exploitation and sex trafficking of children and adults—persists in almost every part of the globe. NORC’s subject matter experts and statisticians help decision-makers worldwide combat trafficking and exploitation by surveying hard-to-reach exploited populations.
Our cutting-edge sampling techniques and ability to conduct rapid ad-hoc studies on people in vulnerable situations allow us to identify victims, estimate prevalence, assess the effectiveness of anti-trafficking interventions, and develop unparalleled evidence-based policy recommendations and strategies.
