Abstract:

This thesis focuses on a cohort of unrestricted line URL officers who graduated from the Naval Postgraduate School NPS in 1985 through 1991. The thesis begins with a description of the officers and their subspecialty codes. Patterns of subspecialty utilization are then analyzed by rank, designator, and gender. Results show that the subspecialty utilization rate as of 1991 for the cohort is 82.4 percent and the utilization rate for those with degrees from the Department of Administrative Sciences is 85.5 percent. Most officers were Commanders 54.6 percent at the time of the study, and 87.1 percent were in compliance with Department of Defense DoD guidelines for utilization. Surface warfare officers accounted for 41.5 percent of the 1985 cohort and 75.4 percent met the DoD utilization guidelines. The cohort consisted mostly of males 85.9 percent, 80.7 percent of whom were utilized in compliance with DoD guidelines.
