This thesis is concerned wit h the analysis of security investigation data extracted from the investigative files of 564 U.S. Navy first-term enlisted personnel who came on active duty between 1979 and 1982. The individuals had all completed their first term of service and had either completed service satisfactorily or had been released early with an adverse discharge. The data was selected from six character-of-service categories: good, homosexual, drug alcohol abuse, misconduct, court martial, and character and behavior disorders. The purpose of the thesis was to investigate optimal ways to configure a large, categorical data base and to look for and quantify relationships between investigative data and final disposition of service. Several noteworthy relationships were found between derogatory information developed in the investigation and the subsequent character-of-service. Further avenues of investigation using this data are suggested.
