Abstract : The objectives of this study were: to briefly explain the history and role of the United States Disciplinary Barracks (USDB) as part of military corrections; to review the philosophical and organizational context of the USDB as part of the military justice system; to determine the extent and analyze the significance of rates of population changes at the USDB; and to assist in future planning by providing a method of simulating the effects on future populations of rates of admission and length of time served. Research and analysis of population trends over the past 10 years were conducted utilizing historical data obtained at the USDB. The admission rates and time served were evaluated, and a method was devised which made it possible to predict the impact on the future population of simulated adjustments in both factors.
