The US Government is one of the largest collectors and distributor of statistics, both notioonally and internationally. As the U.S. government's official web portal, USA.gov makes it easy for the public to get U.S. government information and services on the web. It provides links to websites of the federal government, quasi-government agencies, and those created by public sector/private sector partnerships; state and local governments; and recognized Indian tribes. In rare instances, the sites link to websites that are not government-owned or government-sponsored if these websites provide government information and/or services in a way that is not available on an official government website. USA.gov is an interagency initiative administered by the Federal Citizen Information Center, a division of the U.S. General Services Administration's Office of Citizen Services and Innovative Technologies.

This material is now being maintained as part of the historical background of IRC research activities within our main site. This site looks at one of the worst violations of the rights of children in the world: child trafficking. It provides an on-line source of information on child trafficking in various countries, including the legal framework, the main policy approaches and current programming responses. It aims to be a meeting point for all actors concerned with the welfare of children and the struggle to end their exploitation. It is also intended to enhance inter-agency collaboration and information exchange by hosting on-line publications and bibliographies from other relevant organizations.
