This prior body of research was essential in guiding the formation of the theorized pathway tested in this study.

However as was recommended by numerous researchers reporting a severe deficit of methodologically reliable research on sex trafficking (Goździak & Bump, 2008a; Musto, 2009; Zhang, 2009), this study deviated methodologically from the past precedent of relying on qualitative methods of data collection and analysis. From a research perspective, it was considered important to offer multivariate, quantitative evidence of the existence of the theorized pathway into child sex trafficking (Salisbury & Van Voorhis, 2009; Wikström, 2008). By using quantitative methods of data analysis, it was possible to precisely specify and analytically test the proposed pathway and study hypotheses as well as statistically interpret the results of the analyses.
