    Abstract: Literature has shown that social exclusion can lead to vulnerability in the ability of a person to secure a decent standard of living. Among other vulnerable groups, street sex workers are subject to high levels of social exclusion. This study surveyed 140 street sex workers in Taiwan and investigated the factors associated with the risk for violence and assault by other sex workers and clients. In particular, this study quantifies the effects of sociodemographics, working conditions, and client characteristics related to the risk for violence. Results showed that violence risks from both clients and other sex workers are positively correlated. Prices charged for prostitution services, years in business, workplace, and risky behavior of the sex workers were significant determinants of risks. Moreover, the sociodemographic characteristics of the clients are also important for assessing the sex workers' risk for violence. Findings from this study can provide useful information for social service policies to reduce physical risks against sex workers.
