Abstract:

Since 1975, the U.S. Army Research Institute ARI has collected a wide array of Manpower Personnel Research MPR and Training data in support of its research activities. Until this current effort, there were no formal procedures or guidelines for documenting and archiving these numerous databases. The ability of new users to access and use extant ARI data was heavily dependent on the knowledge of those ARI staff members who worked most closely with the data. With organization turnover and downsizing, critical information needed to access and use data would have been lost over time. This project had two phases. The first Phase developed documentation and archive standards for extant and future ARI data. Phase 2, the focus of this report, applied those standards to specified extant data. The technical approach and procedures used in Phase 2 of this project is the subject of this report.
