Appendix P describes the layouts and coding of the The Post-Service Earnings History File the sample-screening, stratification and selection procedures used and the general skill categories which comprise the occupation groups of interest. An understanding of these elements is essential to both the technical readers of the Fifth QRMC report and to furture users of this unique data base. This file, which resides on magnetic at the Defense Manpower Data Center DMDC, was created from data in the files of the Social Security Administration, the Internal Revenue Service and DMDC in order to form the basis for an assessment of the post-service earnings of former members of the Uniformed Services. This is the first time that such effort has been undertaken. Appendix Q consists entirely of the Coopers Lybrand report, Military Retirees and Separatees Post-Service Earnings. It analyzes the post-service wages and salaries of military personnel relative to comparably aged and educated veterans identified in the 1980 census. It contains a description of the data sources and approach, study methodology and findings, occupations, specific results and age earnings profiles. It further presents a longitudinal analysis and conclusions.
