An analytical review of two consecutive years data from the Enlisted Master File was made to see if the traits of race, years of education, and occupational group appeared to have any effect on advancement of Navy enlisted personnel. A matrix of the percentage of personnel having each trait, showing advancement, non-advancement, reduction in rate or discharge was computed, and comparison of advancement percentage was made against data from a similar matrix generated for total Naval personnel. Further conditional matrices were generated for personnel in the supply ratings only, and comparisons made between the above traits, as well as the traits of number of enlistments, age at enlistment and individual supply ratings. The latter were compared against total of all supply ratings. The purpose was to reveal existence of differences which might be a factor in personnel advancement, not to explain causes of these differences. Author
