MAPS IN THE NEWS:
The Walk Free Foundation estimates that in 2016 there were 45.6 million people in modern slavery around the world. India has the highest absolute number while North Korea and Uzbekistan have the greatest percentage of population in forced labor. The Global Slavery Index seeks to measure the prevalence of modern slavery in a given country, how vulnerable a country's population is to being enslaved, and that country's responsiveness to the issue. This map summarizes the results of the index, with countries in red having particularly poor scores on the index. To explore the interactive version, visit www.globalslaveryindex.org/index/
