Abstract:

The research memorandum summarizes an analysis carried out at the Center for Naval Analyses CNA to determine the timeliness of the Navy Enlisted Classification NEC reports to the Enlisted Master Record EMR. Using quarterly EMR files from June 1983 to June 1984 and from June 1986 to June 1987, analysts estimated the NEC reporting lags i.e., times between the date the NEC is awarded and the date the NEC is posted to an individuals EMR record. The results indicate that NEC reporting lags are relatively rare. Over 90 percent of the NECs appeared on the quarterly EMR within four months of their being awarded. Looking ahead only one quarter, therefore, seems to be sufficient for achieving a relatively complete count, whether one is estimating the number of new awards or determining the total count.
