Abstract:

Files were constructed at the Defense Manpower Data Center DMDC for analysis of ship readiness. Navy enlisted personnel attached to the ships in each observed ship class, were selected. Service-entry information was supplemented with updated quarterly data, for the quarters ended 7609 to 8303, resulting in individual longitudinal records. The Active Duty Military Master and Loss Edit Provided the entry and quarterly information for each record. Extractions from the 2754 position file were made for computational purposes. In addition, binary coding format was converted to character format on tapes sent to the Center for Naval Analysis CNA to meet computer system specifications. These files were used to examine personnel attributes in relation to ship readiness, but also provide excellent sources of data for a variety of applications.
