MetadataShow full item record
Data from Marine Corps enlisted cohorts are analyzed to give insight into personnel flow through the enlisted Marine Corps system. In this paper, a cohort is a group of enlisted men who enlist in a given calendar month for a given length of obligated service. Stationarity assumptions between cohorts from different months are investigated. A major portion of the analysis is devoted to the extrapolation of the incomplete data on four-year enlistees based on the data from two-year and three-year enlistees. A prediction is made of enlisted strength for 1 January 1972 using the results of the analysis in a cohort prediction model. This is compared with the actual strength as of 1 January 1972. Refinements and associated models are suggested for further study.
