Abstract:

A modified regression model was found to be sufficiently accurate to predict advancements by LOS using the volume of advancements and the inventory by LOS as predictor variables. This model was then used to find a relationship between the mean LOS of advancements and the volume of advancements. Such a relationship was not readily verifiable from the data. Some what contrary to expectation, it was found that the mean LOS of advancements may be either a decreasing or an increasing function of volume. Whether it is the former or the latter depends on the pay grade, rating and fiscal year in question. A possible explanation for both the decreasing and increasing type of behavior is also offered.
