Where can I learn about legislation and programs to address child prostitution?
Information about the effect of Federal legislation on child prostitution can be found in the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP)-sponsored report, Effects of Federal Legislation on the Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children. For additional information on Federal legislation, visit the Library of Congress's Thomas Web site. To learn about legislation that has been enacted or introduced in a specific state, conduct a search of the state's legislature Web site. See the State Legislatures Internet Links section of the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) Web site to locate appropriate sites.

Evaluations of programs designed to address child prostitution are available in the following National Institute of Justice (NIJ)-sponsored reports: Evaluation of the Demonstration Project To Address Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children in Atlanta-Fulton County and Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children in New York City, Executive Summary. Additional resources are available by conducting a search of the NCJRS Abstracts Database.
