This study examines the prevalence of commercial sexual exploitation of children (CSEC) in 20 cities in the Dominican Republic through an undercover survey that used qualitative and quantitative methods. This report contrasts 2022 prevalence levels with those obtained in a baseline study conducted by IJM in 2014. This study found a statistically significant 78% reduction in the prevalence of CSEC over the eight years between the two studies. The prevalence of CSEC went from 10.0% in 2014 to 2.2% in 2022.
