Abstract
Objectives: This study builds on research  undertaken  by Bernasco  and
Nieuwbeerta   and explores the generalizability of a theoretically derived
offender target selection model   in three cross-national study regions.
Methods: Taking a discrete spatial choice approach, we estimate the impact
of both  environment-  and offender-level factors on residential burglary
placement  in the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, and Australia. Combin-
ing cleared burglary data from all study regions in a single statistical model,
we  make statistical comparisons between environments. Results: In all three
