IWF Operational Trends

Each year we publish figures on our work in our annual report.

The 2015 Annual Report (published on 21 April 2016) contains the most recent operational trends we’ve seen with regards to criminal online content and in particular child sexual abuse images.

Please note: The IWF uses the term child sexual abuse content to accurately reflect the gravity of the images we deal with. Please note that child pornography, child porn and kiddie porn are not acceptable terms. The use of such language acts to legitimise images which are not pornography, rather, they are permanent records of children being sexually exploited and as such should be referred to as child sexual abuse images. If you see such content online please report it to the IWF.
