Community Assessment for the Central Illinois Human Trafficking Task Force

The Community Assessment for the Central Illinois Human Trafficking Task Force is completed and available to read here.  

The Human Trafficking Research Lab at Millikin would like to thank all the Central Illinois Human Trafficking Task Force members who took time to fill out this survey and provide a valuable evaluation for the future of the task force. We would especially like to thank Sara Sefried and Matt Fuller and other Steering Committee members who provided valuable feedback in the pretest versions of the community assessment survey. The survey was administered in Qualtrics and we would like to thank Linda Collinsworth and the Behavioral Sciences Department at Millikin University for their assistance gaining access to this software. The statistical analyses were performed in Stata12, the network analysis was constructed with NodeXL, the maps were formulated in Tableau 2018, and the frequency analysis and qualitative coding were constructed MAXQDA 2020. Respondent answers were anonymized and slightly altered for anonymity and punctuation/grammar. 

This project was made possible with funding provided by the Central Illinois Human Trafficking Taskforce under 2020-VT-BX-K026/K031 awarded by the Office for Victims of Crime. The opinions, findings, and conclusions or recommendations expressed in this training are those of the contributors and do not necessarily represent the official position or policies of the U.S. Department of Justice.
