Abstract:

This paper examines the response of reenlistments in the Navy to the large increase in military pay in 1971. The major finding of the paper is that the pay elasticity was quite high. Also examined is the structure of rank and, hence, pay among Navy occupations. Although military pay appears to be an effective inducement to reenlistment, improved allocation of pay can result in a preferred mix of reenlistments.
