Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


There is a strong tradition of assessing the predictive validity of actuarial and dynamic risk assessment instruments. To date the bulk of studies indicate moderate predictive validity of both actuarial and dynamic measures.

This commentary indicates three strategies that might be subject to empirical investigation.
