A demographic survey to identify aspects of lifestyle, conditions and characteristics of London sex-workers

Dr Caroline Hollins Martin

There is a dearth of reports on London sex-workers lifestyles, conditions and characteristics of living. Our aim is to establish age, nationality, alcohol and drug use, physical and mental health concerns and whether trafficked or optionally migrated into sex-work.
A demographic survey integrated 4 data collection strategies:

(1) An initial mapping exercise of:
      (a) welfare, social and health care services accessed by the target group, and
      (b) commercial sex sites,
(2) A telephone survey of premises housing sex-workers,
(3) A review of criminal justice data of sex-worker related arrests, and
(4) face-to-face interviews with sex-workers (n = 21).
