Estimating local area manpower supply for the reserves by Jules I Borack( )

3 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Because military reserve centers are constrained to a fixed location, a portion of reserve manpower supply depends on conditions in the local, rather than the national, labor market. A second aspect of manpower supply that is unique to the reserves is that serving in the reserves is in many respects similar to a part-time job. These two characteristics of reserve manpower supply create numerous recruiting problems not faced by the regular branches of the service. The purpose of this report is to outline a methodology for estimating manpower supply to the reserves. The techniques rely upon economic theories of part-time and second job holding to identify factors affecting the potential labor supply at the local labor market level. The paper identifies alternative empirical models appropriate to specify reserve supply functions, and available data sources. While the emphasis in the paper is on the U.S. Army Reserve, certain aspects of the proposed methodology also would be relevant to other reserve branches
Intentions of women (18-25 years old) to join the military : results of a national survey by Navy Personnel Research and Development Center (U.S.)( Book )

3 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In anticipation of the projected decline in the national population of young men, defense planners have given increased thought to expanding the role of women in the military. Therefore, a survey was conducted to gauge the interest of women and men in joining the military under present conditions and under three alternative options involving greater utilization of women. These options relate to the expansion of the role of women in terms of both the physical location (ships, aircraft, combat zones) and nontraditional job classifications (mechanics, electronics) where they are likely to serve. Findings are presented regarding the percentage of women and men interested in joining the military currently and under each alternative. The composition of the pool of interested women is also analyzed in terms of its demographic and attitudinal components. (Author)
The Intentions of Men 23 to 29 Years Old to Join the Military Results of a National Survey by Jules I Borack( Book )

3 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the population of 17-to-21-year-old males, the traditional source for military recruitment, will decline sharply during the 1980s, consideration is being given to recruiting males aged 23-29. A national survey was conducted to assess the interest of 23-to-29-year-old men in joining the military under present conditions and with monetary (bonuses, educational incentives, lateral entry pay) and nonmonetary (training, job, location, guarantees, contract length options) incentives. A variation of random digit dialing was used to locate males in the sample age group not currently in the military; telephone numbers were drawn so that listings for each state were proportional to state population; and interviewing was terminated when approximately 4,000 interviews were obtained. Results of the survey showed that 12.7 percent of the respondents indicated they were definitely or probably planning to join the military, with the Air Force the most preferred service. Persons planning to join the military most commonly listed training, gaining new skills/experience, patriotism, and economic factors as motivating factors. Persons not interested in joining the military noted already having families and jobs as deterrents. The survey also showed that training and locational guarantees, educational benefits, and lateral entry pay were powerful incentives. It was concluded that marketing/advertising strategies need to be developed to recruit men of the 23-29 age group into the military service. (KC)
Costs and Benefits of Alternative Drug Testing Programs by Jules I Borack( )

3 editions published between 1996 and 1998 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A computerized model for determining costs and benefits of alternative drug testing programs was developed, which compared drug use in the Navy with a demographically equivalent group of civilians. The benefits of deterring and detecting drug users were compared with the costs of drug testing to determine net benefits. Benefits of testing were based on the estimated decrease in the number of drug users and the corresponding increase in employee productivity or value. The costs of testing included laboratory testing costs, employee time required to participate in testing, and were computed with and without the costs of replacing detected personnel. The testing rate, which maximizes the net benefits of testing, was greatly affecte%d by the prevalence of drug use in the civilian sector and the decrease in productivity resulting from drug use. Laboratory testing costs also significantly affected the magnitude of optimal test rates. The rate of drug testing strongly influenced the benefits as well as the costs of testing and the effectiveness of the testing program. Estimates derived from the model indicated that present levels of Navy drug testing were cost beneficial. Annual net benefits were estimated at approximately $200 million exclusive of personnel replacement costs

A technique for estimating the impact of improvements in drug testing sensitivity on detection and deterrence of illicit drug use by Navy personnel by Jules I Borack( Book )

2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A model was developed for estimating the impact of improvements in drug testing sensitivity on both detecting and deterring illicit drug users. The model represents an improvement over existing detection and deterrence models by incorporating test rate and sensitivity parameters into estimation of the deterrence effect. The monthly test rate, sensitivity of the test to previous drug use, frequency of drug use, and other factors all impact the probability of detecting and deterring drug users. Improvements in drug test sensitivity were shown to have a dramatic impact on both detection and deterrence of illicit drug users

Estimating the Youth Population Qualified for Military Service( Book )

1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In order to efficiently assign recruiters, equitably allocate recruiting goals, and effectively use limited advertising resources, the U.S. Marine Corps requires detailed knowledge of geographic location and size of the current and future market for young men qualified for military service. This report describes the development of a methodology to estimate and project the number of male, high school graduates, 17 to 21 years old, that can be expected to qualify for military service. Estimates by year, racial/ethnic group, and U.S. Marine Corps recruiting district are given as examples. Use of the estimates by the Personnel Procurement Division of Headquarters, USMC is described
A Conceptual Model for Determining an Optimal Drug Testing Program( )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A conceptual model for determining an optimal cirug testing policy was developed which compared drug use in the Navy with a demographically equivalent group of civilians. A new measure of drug use, a drug-day, was defmed as a day on which the user could test positive if subjected to drug testing. Algorithms were presented which estimate the deterrence and detection effects of alternative drug testing rates. The cost per drug-day was determined based on the estimated relationship between substance abuse and employee productivity in the civilian sector. Estimated benefits were compared to the cost of drug testing in order to assess the net benefit of drug testing and determine optimal test rates. Preliminary estimates derived from the conceptual model indicated that present levels of Navy drug testing were cost beneficial. Annual net benefits were estimated to exceed $23 million
Forecasting the Supply of Women Available to the Navy( Book )

1 edition published in 1980 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Defense planners have given increased thought to expanding the role of women in the military. To gain insight into and obtain estimates of the relative size of the potential female and male Navy military supply pool, health examination survey data, mental aptitude data, and demographic data were analyzed. The population of females and males 17 to 24 years old was successively decremented by estimates of the population of these individuals not available for military service due to physical/medical, mental, or family status reasons. Additionally, individuals not interested in military service were deleted from the estimated supply pool. (Author)
A Procedure for Estimating the Probability of Detecting a Gaming Drug User( )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In order to estimate the effectiveness of random urinalysis drug testing strategies, it is necessary to estimate the probability of detecting drug users. This report presents a series of methodologies for estimating the probability of detecting gaming drug users; individuals who choose their specific days of drug usage based upon their perceived likelihood that testing will occur on a given day. It was observed that command test strategy can dramatically impact the probability of detection. Gaming drug users were less likely to be detected under all scenarios than their non-gaming counterparts
The Intentions of Men 23 to 29 Years Old to Join the Military: Results of a National Survey( Book )

1 edition published in 1982 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The population of 23-29 year olds will increase during the early 1980s and remain above 1980 levels throughout the decade. The population of the prime enlistment pool, 17-21 year old males, will decrease sharply during the 1980s and beyond. Due to the demographic shift, increased consideration may be given toward augmenting this traditional supply source by recruiting somewhat older individuals. Therefore, a survey was conducted to assess the interest of 23-29 year old men in joining the military under present conditions and under monetary (bonuses, educational incentives, lateral entry pay) and nonmonetary (training, job, location guarantees, contract length options) incentives. Findings are presented detailing interest levels under current conditions and under each incentive. The composition of the pool of interested men, uninterested men, and those interested only under incentive options is assessed in terms of its demographic components. (Author)
Techniques for Estimating Pay Entry Base Date Enlisted Personnel Force Structures from Data Categorized by Total Active Federal Military Service( Book )

1 edition published in 1977 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The purpose of this research effort is to develop and assess the accuracy of mathematical techniques which estimate PEBD force structure data (and, concurrently, obtain cost estimates) from TAFMS force structure data. Statistical techniques involving marginal estimation, cell-by-cell conversion, and lagged correlation and regression models were developed and evaluated in terms of their ability to both accurately estimate individual force structure cells and obtain the cost of the entire force structure matrix. The data base studied consisted of series of annual TAFMS and PEBD force structure matrices for the period FY1966-FY1976. Analysis consisted of applying various statistical techniques to 6-year streams of data and applying the obtained results to convert TAFMS data of the following year to PEBD. In this way, estimates of PEBD force structures for FY1973-FY1976 were obtained and compared to the actual PEBD matrix of the corresponding year. Choice of statistical technique for implementation was based upon both theoretical considerations and the result of these comparisons. A statistical technique based upon apportioned highest lagged correlation linear regression estimates provided highly accurate force-structure cost estimates. A statistical technique based upon apportionment of prior-year conversion factors also provided surprisingly accurate cost estimates. Utilization of either an apportioned linear regression or apportioned prior-year conversion factor technique substantially improved estimates obtained from naive costing of TAFMS data matrices

The STRAP Enlisted Predictor: (STEP)( Book )

1 edition published in 1981 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A new computerized management system, the Structured Accession Planning (STRAP) system, is being developed to provide Navy planners with techniques to perform integrated manpower management. This system will enable planners to evaluate the relationships between alternative manpower requirements, personnel policies, and the available pool of qualified military manpower. STRAP is comprised of computerized modules that focus on the major determinants of manpower and personnel policy. These modules include manpower requirements determination, personnel policy evaluation, accession requirements determination, manpower supply forecasting, and personnel flow/loss estimation. This report describes the STRAP Enlisted Predictor (STEP) module, which provides STRAP with estimates of personnel flows and losses. (Author)
A Technique for Estimating the Conditional Probability of Detecting a Non-Gaming Drug User( )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In order to estimate the effectiveness of random urinalysis drug testing strategies, it is necessary to estimate the conditional probability of detecting drug users; that is, the probability that the user will test positive if selected for drug testing. This report presents a series of methodologies for estimating the conditional probability of detecting non-gaming drug users under a wide variety of drug usage and wear-off scenarios. The most general scenario assumes that the probability of detection depend upon the pattern of drug use prior to testing. For non-gaming users, it was observed that the probability of detection and the expected number of months until detection are proportional to the command monthly test rate
