Local Sex Market In 2015 RIA House performed a three month data-mining study in partnership with William James College and the Imagine Foundation. The study monitored the online commercial sex market in Massachusetts' Boston and Worcester regions from March 1 through May 31, 2015. The research team collected data on almost 17,000 ads for commercial sex that are estimated to have generated $7.7 million in revenue. Data such as the number of people sold online for sex and distribution of adds by day of the week allow the analysis of patterns in this market and inferences of trends in the buying and selling of sex. In other U.S. cities similar data mining studies have helped local law enforcement identify persons exploited within the sex industry and have also been instrumental for service organizations to develop targeted outreach.
