Criminal career research is concerned with changes in offending patterns over time. In 1983, the National Academy of Sciences convened the Panel on Research on Criminal Careers, which led to an abundance of research dedicated to the study of criminal careers. The body of knowledge in this area of study has developed greatly over the course of the past two decades. Criminal career research has also generated some debate about key issues relevant to the study of offending behavior, namely the age-crime distribution, the relevance of longitudinal data, and the need to distinguish between several criminal career parameters.
