Abstract:

A preliminary investigation was made to ascertain whether the Naval Manpower pay account for Permament Change of Station expenditures could be statistically modelled. The report includes a description of the PCS planning and execution process, analysis of nine months of data concerning reservations, obligations and expenditures, an explanation why time series analysis is not practicable, a theoretical statistical model for the prediction of expenditure and a recommendation for further research. The conclusion of the study was that PCS expenditure could be successfully modelled when enough data was on hand to be sure of statistically valid results. Author
