This thesis examines data on the possible reasons for attrition among enlisted women in the Navy. Cross-tabulations are employed to analyze the most prevalent reasons for attrition among women in the Navy across occupations and compared with men. Entry cohorts from fiscal years 1986 through 1990 were used to identify personnel who left the Navy prior to the completion of their obligated service over a 48-month period. The study results indicate that, with the exception of pregnancy and alcohol/drugs, the reasons for early separation are generally the same for men and women across Navy occupations. The study suggests that further research is needed to accurately determine and address the reasons for female attrition from the Navy
