This thesis investigates the influence of unit characteristics on unit-level manageable attrition and manageable losses suffered by USAR units. The objective is to determine whether there are differences in manageable attrition rates 'losses of units with different levels of the unit characteristics, and if so, examine the differences. The sample data consist of 914 randomly selected USAR units (TPUs). The data were selected from FY87 files of the Recruit Market Network System maintained by Litton Computer Services. Analysis of variance techniques were used to examine the differences. The unit characteristics analyzed were found to cause significant differences in attrition rates, losses.
