dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this thesis was to identify the factors influencing voluntary retention behavior of first and second terra Air Force enlisted members. Further, how those factors tended to differ across term of service and occupational group was examined. Data were extracted from the 1985 DOD Survey of Officer and Enlisted Personnel. Explanatory variables were grouped into tenure, demographic, cognitive, and economic categories. Logit models were estimated for each term of service and occupational sub group. The results show that the factors affecting retention do tend to differ across term and occupation. Some, like overall satisfaction, were significant to everyone, while others, such as SRB, changed from one group to the next. Recommendations regarding future policy implications were made along with several recommendations for future research.
