dc.description.abstractThis thesis develops and evaluates a methodology designed to quantify perceptions of alternative military retirement plans and components of retirement systems. The technique consists of factoring retirement proposals into common characteristics, surveying a sample of the military popu­lation, asking them to rank and weight characteristic importance and score how each plan fulfills each characteristic, and computing a relative weighted preference for each plan. Based on successful demonstration of this methodology using a sample of mili tary officer students at the Naval Postgraduate School, it is recommended that this method be expanded to a sample of the entire military population. In view of the recent criticism alleging inefficiency and ex­pensiveness of the existing system, the results of such an effort could be useful to the effectiveness portion of a systematic analysis aimed at choosing among alternative retirement systems.
