Yearly, the Department of the Navy pays about $245 million in workers' compensation and related medical benefits under the Federal Employee Compensation Act program. (Bowes, 2003) Based on data from the Defense Manpower Data Center (DMDC) and Defense Finance and Accounting Services (DFAS), the Office of the Secretary of Defense stated that since fiscal year 2002, the number of lost workdays (LWD) the United States Marine Corps (USMC) has accumulated per hundred civilian employees has been higher than the rate for the United States Army (USA), United States Navy (USN) and United States Air Force (USAF). This thesis investigates the LWD rate of the USN and the USMC, with more detailed analysis on the USMC. The goal is to identify factors that lead to a high LWD rate and to find out which employees are more likely to accrue LWD. This study consists of the use of generalized additive models, classification trees, and descriptive statistics to explore historic datasets to determine which factors influence an employee's tendency to accrue a LWD the most. It is found that fire fighters, mechanics and police followed by equipment operators under the GS10 pay grade are at greatest risk of accruing at least one LWD per year.
