Abstract:

Understanding surface warfare officer SWO retention is critical for accession planning and community management. In this information memorandum, we estimate the relationship between SWO retention and the strength of the civilian economy. We estimate that a one-unit increase in an index of macroeconomic activity indicating a worsening of the economy increases conventional SWO retention by 2.6 percentage points. By design, the index is forecastable and could be used to project conventional SWO retention rates. Retention rates of SWOs with the nuclear subspecialty SWONs show no consistent relationship with economic conditions
