Value of Personnel Classification Information by James W Abellera( Book )

2 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The study outlines the development of a methodology for meaningfully estimating the value of classification information used by the Air Force to make selection/assignment decisions which lead to the satisfaction of first-term enlisted manpower requirements. The methodology, called the optimal allocation strategy, is employed to solve a representative allocation problem in a hypothetical enlistment year. This exercise serves to show how the value of available information may be estimated when used in the most efficient manner possible
A Correlational Analysis of Drug Abuse in the Air Force( Book )

1 edition published in 1973 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Information was collected on 4,689 subjects who admitted to having used drugs before entering the Air Force. A correlational analysis of this sample indicated that there appears to be a general tendency to abuse several drugs if a subject has abused one, and that marijuana appears to be associated with low performance on aptitude measures and educational level. Other correlational analyses indicated that the only drug significantly associated with low Airman Performance Reports is marijuana, and that the pattern of optimal weights among background variables in forming prediction composites against Airman Performance Reports among drug abusers is not significantly different from the pattern of such weights among non abusers.

Users of Cannabis Only by Cecil J Mullins( Book )

2 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Subjects who have used only cannabis were compared with those who have used cannabis along with other drugs, and with a control sample on whom no drug-using information was available. Results indicate that cannabis-only users are more effective than users of other drugs, and that even cannabis-only users compare unfavorably with the control subjects in certain metrics which appear to require motivation as an important component. It is suggested that this may be evidence for the 'amotivational syndrome' reported in the literature

Drug Use Data Base( Book )

1 edition published in 1975 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A data base of various drug use variables has been created on a broad sample of 13,452 Air Force service men, officers as well as enlisted men. While lack of resources prevents a detailed analysis of information in the data base, certain trends are evident. Alcohol is consumed by most Air Force personnel, but current use of illicit drugs is confined to a small percentage. In addition, users of illicit drugs are predominately in the first term enlisted ranks. Finally, more than one-third of the users of illicit drugs claim they usually buy their drugs on Air Force bases. (Author)
