The Global Slavery Index is an annual ranking of slavery conditions in countries (2013 n = 162) world wide published by the Walk Free Foundation. It is based on a combined measure of three factors: 1) estimated prevalence of modern slavery by population (using primary and secondary data sources); 2) a measure of child marriage; and 3) a measure of human trafficking in and out of a country.
