These calculations are low estimates. Some reports say only "minors" and not how many; we assume 2 as a conservative estimate.
Also, this is only the number or MINORS trafficked. The total amount of illegal prostitution transacted on Backpage.com,
including sex-trafficked adults, cannot even be guessed at, as it is only the minors who make the news.
