Abstract
This thesis compares occupational trends in the civilian and Navy Labor Markets. This is accomplished by matching civilian occupations to Navy ratings with similar job characteristics. The matched occupations are categorized according to technical level and skill level. These categories are used to compare trends in occupational participation and earnings. The results of the analysis support the conclusion that competition for highly technical and skilled workers between the Navy and civilian work force is increasing. It is recommended that the Navy continue to emphasize highly technical and skilled occupations when allocating reenlistment bonuses. It is also recommended that further research be conducted on the inclusion of occupational variables in regression models that predict reenlistment rates.
