Abstract : The general conclusion of the study is that recentlyretired military officers and their households are economically important to metropolitan Phoenix. Specific conclusions are: (1) The recently-retired military households have a greater overall impact on the real estate, automotive, and major appliances markets than on the minor consumer goods markets in the Phoenix area. (2) Retired military officers and their households choose to locate in the Phoenix area primarily because they find the climate to their liking. (3) Given no employment opportunities, most of the recently-retired officers would leave the Phoenix area to seek work elsewhere. (4) Given the opportunity for suitable part-time work, most recently-retired officers would remain in the Phoenix area. (Author)
