in Transnational Crime

A report by the Home Office stated that the annual revenue that a human trafficker can earn by forcing a woman to work as a prostitute is $77,000 (£48,000).

Security officials in the UK estimate that the total  market of human trafficking in the UK is worth $200 Million (£130 Million). If the entire social and economic costs from human trafficking were included, then the cost to the UK would be $1.4 Billion (£840  Million).
