Abstract:

Knowing the demographics of Navy personnel is key to creating good personnel policies. When this information is not readily accessible in existing databases or is inaccurate, estimates based on survey data are used. The Navy-wide Personnel Survey NPS is one survey that can provide such estimates this technical note provides estimates of family demographics based on the 2003 NPS. Results show that in 2003 there were almost as many Navy children as there were active duty Navy personnel, with 35 percent of the children between 0 and 4 years old, 33 percent between 5 and 11 years old, and 32 percent between 12 and 21 years old.
