Before turning to the data, though, let me further make clear what this chapter will and will not cover. As noted, I will not delve into the debate about the relationship of sex trafficking to sex work. In my research with service providers, I adopted the U.S. federal government’s definition of sex traffi cking as specified in the 2008 reauthorization of the Trafficking Victims Protection Act (TVPA, also known as the William Wilberforce Reauthorization Act), largely because this is the defi nition used by most service providers. The TVPA defines sex traffi cking as enticing, harboring, transporting, providing, or obtaining either an adult for commercial sex by force, fraud, or coercion, or a juvenile for the same purpose regardless of the means (U.S. Department of State, 2013).
