University of Minnesota researchers released a 121-page report yesterday — completed by the Urban Research and Outreach-Engagement Center — filling a gap in research having to do with sex buyers. Using a national study, the report estimates that 1% of Minnesota men may have purchased sex in the past year, while 14% have done so at least once in their lives. According to the Star-Tribune, “The center has researched sex trafficking during past Super Bowls in preparation for Minneapolis hosting the game in February and discounts assertions that the big game results in a dramatic spike in sex trafficking.”

First-ever U study analyzes the patterns of sex buyers in Minnesota.
