Abstract:

At the end of their service obligations, sailors decide whether to reenlist or enter the civilian workforce. Their decisions depend on many factors, including the opportunities that they expect to find in the civilian economy. The implications of their decisions are important for the Navy, which relies on retention to maintain and grow its ranks. Retention forecasts are thus crucial for effective planning. This report focuses on the relationship between the economy and reenlistment decisions. Our goal is to identify changing external conditions that will inform Navy leaders about when to adjust retention budgets and policies.
