Summary note:
Prostitution is one of the least understood occupations but appears to have all the features of traditional markets: prices, supply and demand considerations, variety in the organisational structure, and policy relevance. These are keystones of economics analysis. Greater access to data has enabled economists to build better theories and gain a better understanding of the organisation of sex market. The Oxford Handbook of the Economics of Prostitution is a comprehensive economic analysis of prostitution.
