Reading Time: < 1 minutes

Down-below is a chart that shows the region of origins of the victims of human trafficking. Over 90% of identified victims exploited in Europe have citizenship of a European country, representing the intra-regional nature of trafficking.

This data story presents partially key characteristics from the Global Victim Dataset of approximately 29,000 victims exploited in Europe. Most data is shown at the regional level, and there are some key statistics for the ten countries within the region where the largest amount of data is present.

The data is comprimsed out of the IOM's counter trafficking activities.

Regions and sub-regions are defined according to the official UN classification.

This page will be altered as we add data-sets and charts.
