Hello! I’m currently thinking about doing a project that has to do with identifying hotspots for human trafficking / missing persons. Does anyone have any recommendations about datasets that might be helpful?

Hey ! Thanks for posting. Would love to learn more details about your project as it takes shape. Have you heard about the Polaris Project? I believe Polaris helps run the Counter-Trafficking Data Collaborative which is a large data repository on human trafficking. You can check out info about Polaris here and info about the Counter-Trafficking Data Collaborative here. I probably won’t be able to answer too much more as far as accessing and using data as I’m only familiar with that dataset on a high level. Curious to hear if others in the Community have had experience using this or similar datasets. Isaac - if you also find other datasets that are helpful, please share in general-discussion! Would love to beef up our list of non-SafeGraph datasets to help other researchers.
