Abstract:

Exploratory data analysis techniques were utilized to demonstrate the effectiveness of such techniques in identifying factors associated with attrition from the United States Army. Multivariate graphical data analysis was performed utilizing the Draftsman program recently added to the NPS GRAFSTAT package, as well as other exploratory data analysis techniques. Empirical survivor curves which take into account and explicitly display the discrete probabilities of departure of enlistees at 36 and 48 months are provided. Tables are provided depicting probabilities of attrition and reenlistment for selected personal characteristics of enlistees. Author
