Abstract:

A major problem in the manpower and personnel research community is the transfer of technology from the laboratory to operational settings. One solution to this problem involves translating statistical findings that may be difficult to interpret into economically meaningful statements. Utility analysis is one way of accomplishing this translation. This paper provides a critical review of recent developments in utility analysis and assesses how applicable these developments are to military research programs. Illustrative examples of the application of utility models to Air Force personnel research projects are given. Recommendations are made for areas of future research. sdw
