Abstract
The object of this project is to estimate the amount of labor cost sharing (LCS) for both the United States Forces Korea (USFK) and the Republic of Korea government, using a forecasting model. This essential tool wiill allow leadership in the Korean peninsula to make decisions ahead of time that may prevent demonstrations and mass layoffs affecting the mission and the objective of U.S. presence in the region. With the planned move of Yongsan Garrison from Seoul to the Pyeongtack region in 2008, there will be a mass consolidation in supporting units. The consolidation will result in reduced need of Korean Nationals (KN) in the region. Although the forecasting model may not result in perfect information, it will give the leadership a better tool to make critical decisions regarding the future of KN employees who are vital to the mission.
