Development of a Data Base for Direct Analysis of Airmen Loss Rates. Interim Report. January 1, 1972-July 31, 1973.
Carpenter, James B.
This study was designed to accomplish two interrelated objectives: first, to investigate the existing relationship between selected factors previously identified as being significant in attempting to predict military service losses during first-term service and second, to make available to qualified users a comprehensive data base for further analysis as specific questions in this area arise. The data base developed is described in detail and methodologies for interpretation are suggested in an analysis of the effects of mental category classification, age, and preservice education level on potential airman attrition for undesirable causes. All factors cited were found to show a significant relationship with the existing loss rate of first-term airmen. (Included in the document are a two-item bibliography, three appendixes, and six graphs.) (Author/BP)
