Abstract: TIMS Online is a standardized data collection and reporting system that is used to track required trafficking grant performance measurements across multiple OVC trafficking victim services grants biannually. Specifically, this report summarizes the activities conducted and the trafficking victims served by 39 active OVC grantees during the following two reporting periods: January 1 - June 30, 2012, and July 1 - December 31, 2012. Outreach and training efforts are also reported. The total number of trafficking victims served by OVC grantees from January through December 2012 was 1,462. Of these victims, 46 percent were categorized as victims of sex trafficking, 43 percent as victims of labor trafficking, and 9 percent as victims of both sex and labor trafficking.; 2 percent of victims served were categorized as “other” or “unknown.” Of the victims served, 65 percent were foreign nationals, and 35 percent were U.S citizens or legal permanent residents. For foreign national victims, labor trafficking was the most common type of trafficking victimization; and sex trafficking was the most common type of trafficking among U.S citizen victims. Of the trafficking victims served in 2012, 79 percent were women; 86 percent of the male trafficking victims were labor-trafficking victims. Eighty percent of the victims served were adults. During 2012, Federal law enforcement submitted the greatest number of referrals for foreign national victims, followed closely by community-based providers; local law enforcement was the top referral source for U.S. citizen victims. Grantee reports show that 465 active partners provided direct services to trafficking victims in 2012. 8 figures and 3 tables
