“Fact Check-Data showing rise in U.S. human trafficking may hide more complicated picture” Reuters

International human rights organization LOVE146 (love146.org/) says on its frequently asked questions page (love146.org/about/#faqs): “Frankly, no one knows exactly how many people trafficking affects.”

Erin Williamson, Vice President of Global Programs and Strategy for LOVE146, told Reuters via email that there is “no good data on the scope of human trafficking in the United States.” She went on to say there is also “no way to know or say with any certainty” that “trafficking is at an all-time high.”
