Abstract

The authors present a three-step civil commitment model and formulas for calculating 1) the probability of release from the commitment process and 2) the relative importance of the three steps in determining outcome. Using data from Oregon's civil commitment process, they present five examples that demonstrate how their method might be used to study and monitor civil commitment processes within and between jurisdictions. The major public policy and research implications are discussed.
