Disciplinary Report Rates & Averages

On December 31, 2004 , 18,941 inmates were still incarcerated who were included in the original study. A follow up of the disciplinary reports (DR’s) of those inmates found that 67% of them did not participate in chapel programs in the original study. From the study period of 07/01/01 until 12/31/04 , 72.7% of those inmates received at least one DR and the group averaged 3.83 DR’s for the 42-month period. Nine hundred seventy-one of the inmates (5%) that were still incarcerated were inmates who had attended chapel programs 10 or more times per month. Only 51% of this group received a DR from 07/01/01 until 12/31/04 and the group average was 1.9 DR’s for the 42-month period. Their total DR average had a relative percentage difference of 50% less than those inmates who did not attend chapel programs at all.
