Three subsamples of employees from the Brooklyn and Portsmouth yards were compared with one another over three points in time Shortly after the announcement to close the yards and one and two years later. The hypotheses were tested within a stress model in which Brooklyn was designated as a high stress yard and Portsmouth a low stress yard.
