The methodology therefore used to gather information on this topic will consider the main variables used relative to how the CSEC is carried out in different places. This is important because the situation happens for different reasons in the different places in focus (UNESCO 13). The paper will also analyze date description methods and the variables used to make an evaluation of alternative solutions. The barriers to effective implementation of the policies will be put to focus in equal measure. Apart from New York City (NYC), other places of focus are India, Thailand and Sweden.
Variables bear the definitive value of things that can be changed in a research to comparatively suite situations. In this research, the first variable that was put in practice was the age factor of the participants. This is in view of the definition of the age bracket of people that are considered children (Simic 34). The New York State Office For Children defines the number as generally being under the age of 18 while the United Nations put the specific age bracket involved to between 16 and 18 years. Age as a variable is important since it can be used to get the exact demographic figures of the population involved. The figure would further be divided into race and location of origin so that there would be an exact position of the groups that are most vulnerable. According to Muslim (2008), the period “between” 1982 to 2006 saw the number of arrests of children engaging in the activity as just above 7000. There has been changes in the trend over the years with some years clocking very high marginal values and others clocking low marginal values. This variable is also important in that it helps to make a follow up on the destinations of the victims after attaining 18 years.
