This thesis examines factors that influence the retention of enlisted members in pay grades E1-E5 and E6 in the Selected Navy Reserve. Data were extracted from the 2000- 2001 Navy Reserve Career Decisions Survey. Chi-square tests of independent were used to assess the relationship of various demographic, unit-type, critical-rate, and reserve experience variables to plans for retention to retirement eligibility. Thirteen factors significantly associated with planned retention for E1-E5'S and ten for E6'S are identified. E6'S indicate a higher retirement intention rate than do E1-E5'S. For both pay grade groups, males indicate a higher retirement intention rate than do females and married members indicate a higher retirement intention rate than do non-married members. E1-E6 Prior Service members indicate a higher retirement intention rate than do E1-E6 Non Prior Service members. For both groups, Reserve Center/Readiness Command unit type is positively associated with planned retention while aviation and shipboard unit types are not significantly related. For E1-E5'S, retirement intent is positively related to serving in a critical rating, while it is not for E-6'S. For E1-E6'S, retention plans are also strongly dependent on opinions about quality of training, accomplishment recognition, family impact, civilian job impact, educational benefits and senior leadership.
