dc.description.abstract Child sexploitation data are difficult to find and often of questionable validity. To understand the scope of the problem and examine criminal patterns, data needs to be charted across time on a large scale and analyzed in context with structural explanatory factors. Methods: To determine what data are available, six countries were examined, and a data set developed. The data were quantitatively compared to national structural factors (ex: infant mortality rates). Results: There was very little accurate data. Very rough estimates were obtained, but cannot be construed as scientifically reliable. Conclusions: Accurate research with replicable methodology will lead to a better understanding of the problem so that patterns and predictors can emerge from valid and reliable data.
