Abstract:

The purpose of this thesis is to examine the attrition behavior of the first accessions, fiscal year 1984 accessions, into the SeaAir Mariner SAM program and develop an improved screening table for SAM applicants. Data files of active Navy, Ready Mariner, and SAM personnel were used as the basis for applying statistical methods to develop an improved screening table. This study found serious deficiencies with the SAM data file. The necessity that manpower data be accurate and reliable must be continually emphasized. Data should be screened for accuracy prior to being sent to the Defense Manpower Data Center DMDC. Continued efforts to develop selection standard models are essential, for it is through these efforts that the cost of recruiting and training Naval personnel can be reduced.
