Abstract or Description

The recent paper “Crime Places in Context: An Illustration of the Multilevel Nature of Hot Spot Development” (Deryol et al, 2016), published in the Journal of Quantitative Criminology, uses multilevel Poisson regression analysis to evaluate factors which contribute to local crime rates. This letter explores several technical errors which undermine its conclusions.
