Abstract : Motivational factors in accession and retention behavior of Navy men were identified in a reanalysis of 3 past surveys. Economic, psychological, and personal history variables were found to be of joint importance in predicting enlistment and reenlistment behavior. Better measurement of these kinds of variables should result in improved predictions and policy control mechanisms. (Author)
