PhD Student Lisa Fedina and Associate Professor Bruce DeForge have a new paper published as part of a Special Issue in the Journal of Human Trafficking that explores promising public health research methodologies used to estimate the prevalence of human trafficking. Examples of studies using methods such as Respondent-Driven Sampling and Venue-Based Sampling to estimate hidden and stigmatized populations (e.g., injection drug-users, homeless and runaway youth) are presented and a set of strategies to be considered for future prevalence studies on human trafficking are proposed. More details can be found at dx.doi.org/10.1080/23322705.2017.1280316.
