This research memorandum examines the survival rates of prior-service Navy personnel from FY 1978 through FY 1984. Survival rates for this group of recruits i.e, at what rate and for how long they remain in the Navy depend primarily on the paygrade at enlistment. The analysis shows a sharp distinction between E1-to-E3 enlistees and E4-to-E7 enlistees, with the latter group having the higher rates. It also examines other factors influencing survival rates including age, education level, enlistment program, and previous military experience.
