The purpose of this thesis was the development of a first-term attrition severity index for 85 United States Navy enlisted ratings. The multiattribute model utilized in the development of the index was constructed using five rating-specific factors: 1) attrition, 2) replacement cost, 3) size (number of personnel in the rating), 4) shortage or excess of billet requirements, and 5) priority. The model provided first-term attrition severity indicators for the 85 ratings included in the study, indicating the diverse impact of attrition across Navy ratings and providing a practical basis for assigning scarce manpower resources to enlisted ratings experiencing the most severe effects of first-term attrition.
