Methodology: We extracted human trafficking related records in the World-Check database and identified countries with which the entry was associated. Then we assumed that trafficking went from lower GDP countries to higher GDP countries.

Definition: Human trafficking is defined by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime as:

...the recruitment, transportation, transfer, harbouring or receipt of persons, by means of the threat or use of force or other forms of coercion, of abduction, of fraud, of deception, of the abuse of power or of a position of vulnerability or of the giving or receiving of payments or benefits to achieve the consent of a person having control over another person, for the purpose of exploitation. Exploitation shall include, at a minimum, the exploitation of the prostitution of others or other forms of sexual exploitation, forced labour or services, slavery or practices similar to slavery, servitude or the removal of organs
In this analysis we examine the crime of human trafficking in the context of movement from one country to another
