The average age of entry into prostitution for a child victim in the United States is 13-14 years old. (U.S. Department of Justice)
A pimp can make $150,000-$200,000 per child each year and the average pimp has 4 to 6 girls. (U.S. Justice Department, National Center for Missing and Exploited Children)
The average victim may be forced to have sex up to 20-48 times a day. (Polaris Project)

After drug dealing, human trafficking is tied with the illegal arms trade as the second largest criminal industry in the world, and it is the fastest growing.
North Carolina is ranked as a top ten state for human trafficking. It is estimated that North Carolina ranks number 7 or 8, this depends on which article you read. According to the Daily Tarheel, the state does rank in the top-ten the country The statistics are staggering: more than 1700 girls are estimated to be trafficked in North Carolina each year, but probably the most sad statistic of them all, being that girls as young as 12 years old are apart of that number. The city of Charlotte ranks as the 6th city in the country for trafficking.
