This data story presents key characteristics from the Global Victim Dataset of approximately 16,000 victims exploited in Asia. Most data is shown at the regional level, and there are some key statistics for the ten countries within the region where the largest amount of data is present. The subset mainly comprises data from IOM and from Liberty Asia's counter trafficking activities. Regions and sub-regions are defined according to the official UN classification.

Around two thirds of victims exploited in Asia are victims of trafficking for labour exploitation, while around a quarter are victims of trafficking for sexual exploitation.

Notably, 90% of victims identified as being exploited in Asia are adults. This is in contrast to the Global Victim Dataset at large, which has a higher proportion of children.

Among identified cases of victims exploited within the region of Asia, females represent approximately two thirds of the caseload.

Over 80% of identified victims exploited in Asia have citizenship of an Asian country, representing the intra-regional nature of trafficking.

Whilst within Asia there is a higher proportion of identified female victims, male victims are more proportionately represented in some of the lowest and in the highest age categories. The reverse is true for categories between 15 and 38 years of age, with higher proportions of females.

Traffickers use many means of controlling their victims, and each victim can be subject to several means of control during the course of their trafficking experience. Adult victims exploited in Asia tend to be controlled much more through taking of earnings, restrictions on movement, excessive working hours and withholding of documents than children. Both adults and children are controlled more through false promises than any other means of control, while children are controlled proportionately more through sexual abuse.

Almost 40% of identified victims exploited in Asia are single, while a quarter are married.

By far the most common sector of work for victims of trafficking for labour exploitation in Asia is domestic work, representing over 50% of victims. Other sectors victims are commonly trafficked into include agriculture, aquafarming, construction and hospitality.
