In 2013, the Institute of Medicine (IOM) and the National Research Council (NRC) published a report about commercial sexual exploitation and sex trafficking of minors in the United States. The report, Confronting Commercial Sexual Exploitation and Sex Trafficking of Minors in the United States, was funded by the U.S. Department of Justice Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention. It provides a comprehensive view of this issue and offers a detailed explanation of its findings and recommendations.

This guide, which was also funded by the U.S. Department of Justice Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, was edited by Rona Briere and Patti Simon.
