While it is difficult to quantify the number of victims of human trafficking because the crime is inherently underground, it is estimated that 40.3 million people were victims of modern slavery in 2016. Of those 40.3 million, almost 25 million were victims of forced labor and 15.4 million were in forced marriage. There is an average of 5.4 victims of trafficking for every 1,000 people in the world
Human trafficking can happen anywhere, both domestically and across international borders. The UN reports that about 46% of trafficking victims were identified as women and 19% as girls. Victims identified as children compromised 1 out of 3 victims of human trafficking. Though women and girls make up the majority of trafficking victims, men accounted for 20% of victims.
