While it is difficult to quantify the number of victims of human trafficking because the crime is inherently underground, the International Labor Organization estimates that 50 million people were victims of modern slavery in 2022, that translates to nearly one of every 150 people in the world.

That is a 6.6 million increase in the number of people living in a forced marriage from 2016.
