The problem was to identify rate and type of attrition in non-nuclear power trained enlisted personnel over the term of their enlistment. An overall projected rate of attrition was 48 in 14 quarters of service. Three periods of losses were identified using rational and empirical clustering methods. Early losses related to problems in submarine school, middle losses related to behavioral and psychological problems during deployment, and later losses at about 3 years were related to misconduct behavior. Loss characteristics were discussed in relationship to other areas of organizational research. The analyses provide a basis for the design of an effective psychological screening program. In addition, the research outlines other areas of investigation relevant to employee job withdrawal behavior.
