ABSTRACT
This panel addresses issues in the design, implementation, and interpretation of multisite research in criminology. Based on examples from their past and current research, presenters will describe the relationship between the number of sites, the role of local researchers and practitioners, and data collection and analysis. The strengths and weaknesses of alternative designs will be compared and suggestions for future multisite designs will be considered.
