Each life course theory is a culmination of variables such as societal-level variables (social learning, social control, social structure), individual variables (personality and intelligence), social aggregate variables (income and neighborhood), cognitive variables, socialization variables (marriage, parenting, children, and military service), and situational factors that are strong predictors in both criminal and victimization models like routine activities theory.
