Even in the 21st century, “modern slavery” or “human trafficking” is still extremely active and making about $150.2 billion per year through the 25 million people being enslaved. This “hidden crime,” human trafficking, is a major problem in the world because so many traffickers force people, especially females, into sex, labor, and other different acts to make a profit for traffickers while the world barely can recognize or identify the victims of these terrible crimes. Because of the lack of knowledge about human trafficking, many people are not cautious and thus become victims. In addition, because people do not know how to identify victims, fewer victims are rescued. There needs to be evidence-based research on what people already know about human trafficking, and about identifying and helping victims. This survey will also investigate what people believe are the best methods of raising awareness on this subject. This survey is digitally sent to people of all different ages, genders, and ethnicities.
