Abstract

The Program on Human Development and Criminal Behavior (the “Program”) has developed a sophisticated, interdisciplinary, and intellectually ambitious agenda for research on the causes and prevention of crime. The agenda includes a series of overlapping longitudinal studies in a single site of seven cohorts of individuals ranging in age at the outset from birth to age 18; one or more full or partial replications of the study in other sites; a linked series of experimental assessments of promising interventions directed at different age groups; and a series of related methodological, statistical, and pilot studies.
