Description of officers and enlisted personnel in the U.S. Armed Forces : a reference for military manpower analysis by Zahava D Doering( Book )

2 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report provides a description of the officers and enlisted personnel in the United States Armed Forces. The data for this description are drawn from the 1978/1979 DoD Survey of Officers and Enlisted Personnel, jointly designed and administered by The Rand Corporation and the Department of Defense. This work should contribute to defense manpower policy analyses and evaluation by providing demographic, economic, behavioral, and attitudinal information about the men and women on active duty not available as part of the routinely collected administrative data; by identifying problematic areas of military life which may be amenable to ameliorative action; and by isolating specific areas for further policy analyses
The military enlistment process : what happens and can it be improved? by Sue E Berryman( Book )

3 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Examines the military enlistment process by tracing the outcomes of individuals who applied for active duty in fiscal year 1977. The analysis located previously unsuspected, major losses of applicants who met service educational and medical standards, but did not take the medical examination. Since the All Volunteer Force was introduced in 1973, the military services have annually screened hundreds of thousands of applicants. To monitor the performance of the recruiting process, service and OSD managers need routine information on what happens in the process, to whom, and why. The military's applicant data systems have an information potential not now realized, although it easily could be with only small changes in what kinds of data are entered, how promptly, and in what form, and in the information processing technology (i.e., computer hardware and software) required to support these changes. This report shows how these changes would let service and OSD managers monitor and manage the recruitment process more effectively as its parameters change during the 1980s and the 1990s
Models of the first-term reenlistment decision by Winston Chow( Book )

2 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Uses data on 4,000 first-term Army, Navy, and Air Force enlisted personnel to construct a model of reenlistment based on survey measures of the value of regular military compensation (RMC), bonuses, in-kind and in-cash allowances, and negative aspects of the service environment. Concludes that reenlistment rates would rise significantly if RMC were increased, but that changes in the other factors would have negligible effect. Reenlistment rates were higher among personnel who received higher bonus payments, among females and nonwhites, and among those who received the dependent quarters allowance in kind instead of in cash. Rates were lower among those who underestimated the value of their compensation, who had completed high school education or more, whose test scores indicated high mental ability, and who served in the Air Force. Although rises in RMC are effective, the authors concluded that shifting to all-cash compensation would entail dislocations that could outweigh the beneficial effects on reenlistment."--Rand abstracts
Military retirees' post-service earnings and employment : prepared for the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense/Manpower, Reserve Affairs, and Logistics by Richard V. L Cooper( Book )

2 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The military retirement system has been a major public policy concern for many years, and it is one that is becoming increasingly important and visible. Some revision to the present system is warranted, but any examination of this system and the possible alternatives to it must include consideration of many different issues. This report examines one of these issues - military retirees' post-service earnings and employment. The present study indicates that retired military officers as a whole earn about 25 percent less than comparably aged and educated nonretired veterans, while enlisted retirees earn about 20 percent less than their nonretired peers. However, this earnings differential is almost entirely accounted for by the fact that military retirees work less than their nonretired counterparts. Those military retirees who work full-time, year-round earn about as much, on the average, as similarly employed nonretired veterans
A model of reenlistment decisions of Army National Guardsmen by Burke K Burright( Book )

2 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An econometric model of reenlistment decisions for Army National Guardsmen is developed using data collected from 2876 surveys. The surveys were administered to Guardsmen with less than 8 years of service who were making a reenlistment decision during 1978. The results of the model shows that a 10 percent increase in reserve pay would bring only a 2 percent increase in reenlistment rates. Since almost all Guardsmen are moonlighters, high civilian job wage levels and hours worked bring lower reenlistment rates, Demographic composition and education level significantly affect reenlistment rates. Other things equal, women, blacks, and those who do not complete high school have higher reenlistment rates than their counterparts. Overall, the mode predicts that reenlistment rates will more than double after 1978, thanks to a favorable demographic composition and the absence of draft motivated reservists. (Author)
Resource allocation in the Department of Defense : a case study of Army aviation maintenance by Rand Corporation( Book )

3 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Using the planning and management processes in Army aviation maintenance, the authors examine how DoD adjusts resource requirements in response to input price changes. The report is based on an extensive literature survey and several hundred interviews conducted during 1977-1979. Because defense activities are dynamic, many of the specific problems of Army aviation maintenance have changed since the period of this report. The study does not seek to solve specific problems in Army aviation maintenance, however, or even to focus exclusively on Army aviation maintenance itself. It addresses a problem that has persisted over the entire period since World War II--DoD's reluctance to recognize changing input prices and respond accordingly. The report offers no specific policy recommendations; rather it aims to provide a better understanding of how DoD's planning and management processes work, to provide a foundation upon which future work can build to define policy options that improve these processes.

The Multiple option recruiting experiment( Book )

2 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Analyzes an experiment, begun in January 1979, to test the effectiveness of new enlistment incentives aimed primarily at high-quality males for hard-to-fill occupational specialties. The incentives included a two-year enlistment option, enhanced postservice educational benefits, and an "IRR option" permitting recruits to choose between reserve and active duty after completing initial training. The enlistment responses to the options were disappointing: none of the options elicited a sizable response. Only the IRR option showed promise as an incentive for combat arms enlistees. An examination of the policy issues associated with the incentives suggests that shorter-term enlistments and educational benefits may even be detrimental to the services in the long run because they lead to lower retention at the end of the first term of service
Organizing survey research to support military manpower policies by Zahava D Doering( Book )

3 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Describes the origin, functions, organizational structure, and accomplishments of the RAND-DOD Survey Research Project. Because the project was experimental, this description evaluates its work and recommends the transfer of its responsibilities to the Department of Defense. The basic requirements for an in-house survey research program in the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense (Manpower, Reserve Affairs and Logistics) (MRA & L) are (1) the design, execution, and analytic support of major (in-house) MRA & L surveys; (2) centralized information and support capability for manpower-related survey data; and (3) support and review capability for DOD-wide surveys. RAND's recommendations are as (1) execute analytic and survey design functions, appoint an external Survey Advisory Board, create an internal coordinating body, establish design and analysis teams for major surveys, and utilize contractor support to supplement in-house expertise; and (2) reestablish a survey division at the Defense Manpower Data Center and formalize links between the survey division, the relevant offices of MRA & L and the proposed Survey Advisory Board and internal coordinating body
Recruit aptitudes and Army job performance : setting enlistment standards for infantrymen by Rand Corporation( Book )

3 editions published between 1982 and 1983 in English and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Presents findings from a study of the relationship between observable characteristics of military enlistees and their subsequent job performance, and the use of those relationships in a model for setting enlistment standards. Two performance measures are examined: retention (what portion of the initial enlistment tour is completed), and job proficiency. Recruit aptitudes are important predictors of success on the Army's Skill Qualification Test for infantrymen, and on earlier experimental hands-on tests for four other Army jobs. The performance results are combined with recent data on Army recruiting, training, and force-maintenance costs in a cost-performance trade-off model. The model yields an optimal enlistment standard for the Infantryman speciality that is close to that adopted in fiscal year 1981, and a quality mix for entering recruits about the same as the mix mandated by Congress. Adopting optimal standards Army-wide could cost $100 to $200 million. (Author)
