Having examined each of the outcomes separately, noting the clusters of variables preceding and determining the levels of outcome, we are now ready for an integrated look at all six outcomes and their chief determinants. Collating this material will also help us to pull together the strands of earlier chapters. The overarching question here is whether there are general outcome patterns and, if so, whether they have the same or similar antecedents. If no clear patterns emerge, are there distinct “families” of sites, each with a specific outcome profile and the same causal trails leading there?
