A Model for Predicting Recruit Losses,
CENTER FOR NAVAL ANALYSES ARLINGTON VA
Pagination or Media Count:
Congress and the Defense Department have been concerned about the premature loss rates of recruits in the all-volunteer force. The Navy is concerned not only about the effects of premature losses on fleet readiness, but also about their dollar costs in the face of increased recruiting costs and military pay. Consequently, the objective of this paper was to develop a model of losses during the first year of service that could be used to evaluate recruiting policy and applicants for enlistment.
