Abstract:

This report reviews studies to determine if a theoretical framework has been developed which reveals how economic factors transmit their effects into the Air Force Manpower and Personnel System AFM and PS - AFMPS. This report also determines if a consistent rationale has been developed to serve as a basis for formulating Air Force policies which optimally respond to environmental fluctuations. Studies were examined that describe quantitative relationships between the external labor market ELM and the AFM and PS. Of particular interest were studies directed toward determining whether definite relationships could be established that link the ELM with a career and training preferences of present and potential members of the Air Force, b retention rates by job andor skill categories of current Air Force members, and c structural characteristics and internal behavior of the AFM and PS. Results of this study, if applicable, will be used in developing an ELM module for the Integrated Simulation Evaluation Model of the AFMPS.
