This research addressed two research questions: (a) controlling for crack use, what are the factors associated with women's engagement in ever having traded sex? and (b) controlling for crack use, what are the factors associated with women's engagement in sex trading in the past 90 days? The sample included 149 sexually active, crack using women selected from a subsample of participants in the Kentucky NIDA AIDS Cooperative Agreement. Bivariate analyses indicated that in addition to the pattern of crack use, 13 of the candidate variables were significantly related to sex trading, ever and 11 related to sex trading in the past 90 days. The multivariate models accounted for more than 40% of the variance in sex trading, ever and almost 59% of the variance in sex trading over the past 90 days. Suggestions for HIV/AIDS prevention and intervention among drug-involved women are discussed; implications for future research are suggested.
