CrimeSolutions By the Numbers...

Reasons for Findings of Inconclusive Evidence

CrimeSolutions uses rigorous research to inform practitioners and policy makers about what works. Because we set a high-bar for the scientific rigor of the evaluations we use to do this, many evaluations do not meet our criteria. Such programs are included in the list because of the insufficient research evidence about the program, not because of any known weaknesses in the programs themselves.
