Pagination or Media Count:
This report describes a systematic research and evaluation of the quality of the existing Officer Longitudinal Research Data Base OLRDB. The OLRDB consists of the core data set, Reserve Officer Training Corps ROTC advanced camp data set, ROTC commission data set, Automated Instructional Management System AIMS data set, and United States Military Academy USMA data set. The results of the evaluation suggest a redesign of the OLRDB to accommodate cohort longitudinal research designs and econometric research models. Further expansion of the OLRDB into the Longitudinal Officer Administrative Data Base LOADB would accommodate current and future research needs. The information in this report will guide efforts to expand the data base to accommodate behavioral, social, policy, and economic research.
