Abstract : AMSARA's mission is to support the development of evidence based medical standards for the Department of Defense (DoD) by guiding improvement of medical and administrative databases and conducting epidemiologic and special studies analyses. Analyses presented in this annual report include analyses of accession medical disqualifications, waivers, existed prior to service and disability discharges. Descriptive statistics are reported for DoD enlisted accessions who enlisted in 2012 compared to FY 2007 through FY 2011 accessions totals. Data are collected while the recruits remain on active duty for the first fiscal year (through fiscal year 2012 for this report). The data are then merged, analyzed and results presented as aggregated tables and figures.
