This report analyzes nonprior service attrition in the Army Reserve and Army National Guard, and is an extension of work reported earlier in N-2079-RA. It develops models of attrition that assign a probability of attrition to each recruit type, thus providing a basis for setting improved enlistment standards. Study results show that, similar to Active Force attrition studies, separation rates for ......

This Note documents the Civil Reserve Air Fleet (CRAF) as a case study on the use of commercial assets to augment military capabilities during contingencies or national emergencies. The CRAF illustrates some of the issues one might expect to find in a similar program using civil and commercial satellites. Both contend with the problem of providing an appropriate mix of incentives to participate, b......

This report analyzes the attrition of Army Reserve and Army National Guard enlistees who have had no prior military service. It develops models of attrition that assign a probability of attrition to each recruit type. The models are based on analyses of historical attrition for the fiscal year 1980-1982 cohorts entering the Army National Guard and Army Reserve. The report focuses on separations to......
