GAO Doubts on Trafficking Estimates

The United States Government Accountability Office (GAO) produced a study in July 2006 questioning the manner in which the State Department calculated its human trafficking figure. The GAO stated that estimates are ” questionable” . In its Results in Brief section, the report states ” The accuracy of the estimates is in doubt because of methodological weaknesses, gaps in data, and numerical discrepancies.”
