Abstract:

The research under the first years funding has been largely the development of simulation capabilities which, when completed, will allow one to make statements about the effect of economic and demographic factors on the Navys recruiting situation. The authors do not yet have strong conclusions regarding the determinants of recruit quality but expect to reach some in the second year of the contract. The present version of the RASST model predicts several variables affecting the military age labor market. However, it does not include money wages in the private economy. Since military recruiting, attrition and reenlistments are influenced by the relation between military and civilian wages, it would be an important improvement in terms of military recruitment simulations for RASST model to add wages.
