Prostitution of Juveniles: Patterns From NIBRS
(NCJ 203946) June 2004
OJJDP Crimes Against Children Series, Bulletin, 12 page(s)
Finkelhor, D., Ormrod, R.
 
Examines the prostitution of juveniles by analyzing incidents of this problem that come to the attention of law enforcement. Part of the Crimes Against Children Bulletin Series, this Bulletin draws on data from the FBI’s National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS) to provide a profile of juvenile prostitution, noting characteristics that distinguish it from its adult counterpart. Although information about the prostitution of juveniles is scarce, the data from NIBRS can be used to help juvenile justice officials and others better identify and respond to the sexual exploitation of youth.
