Trafficking for sexual exploitation of women and girls makes up two thirds of that total, or around $US99 billion. UNODC 2016 Global Report on Trafficking in Persons identified more than 500 different trafficking flows in 2012-2014 and 137 different citizenships of identified victims of trafficking in Western and Southern Europe.
