Abstract : A Navy enlisted aggregate personnel projection model was developed to analyze various relationships of changes in force structure to changes in personnel inventory. This model examines a variety of personnel policies and changes in force structure variables. It is specifically designed to test the future ramifications of short term personnel policies and portray the trade-off between short and long term policy objectives. Statistical extrapolation, econometric, and mathematical logic have been accomplished on such variables as loss rates and promotion ratios to provide a more exact specification of the model in addition to a better prediction capability.
