Abstract:

This thesis was directed toward understanding the problem of Navy career enlisted retention. The thesis develops a statistical model to explain past Navy career retention rates, and to predict future career retention rates in the Navy. The statistical model utilizes economic variables as predictors. The model developed has a high correlation with Navy career retention rates. The problem of Navy career retention has not been adequately studied, and this thesis provides an initial examination of this area. The retention decisions are based upon economic variables. The findings indicate Navy policy-makers must be cognizant of the relationships of economic factors to Navy career retention rates. Author
