Abstract:

The study was undertaken to provide a quantitative description of the graduate degree holders within the Air Force line officer force. Line officers holding graduate degrees who were on active duty between 1961 and 1968 comprised the research population. The basic data source was the uniform officer record and the UOR reformat, a historical research file maintained by the personnel research division. Records of officers on active duty as of June 1968 were examined to determine how and when they obtained their degrees and the academic specialties and degree levels involved. The population was also examined at different points in time during the period 1961 through 1967 to determine distributions and growth rates among the various duty occupational groups. Retention rates for line officers with graduate degrees were obtained and compared with retention rates for all line officers during the period 1961 through 1967. Information reflecting the distribution by rank of the graduate degree holders in the line officer force for the years 1961 and 1968 was also included. Author
