*Each State Report’s findings are derived from data the Human Trafficking Institute compiled for the 2020 Federal Human Trafficking Report. Findings are not a prevalence
estimate of trafficking in the state but instead serve as an objective summary of federal efforts to address human trafficking in that state. The Report does not capture
data from state prosecutions, federal or state civil suits, or unreported human trafficking cases.
