Abstract : Attrition from an active airman status amounts to approximately 17% annually. Summary data presented have served to quantify, to some extent, the characteristics of airmen medically certified during 1968 subsequently becoming attrition during 1970. The contribution of medical factors to attrition has been considered as well as experience, occupation, usage, and geographic characteristics. Population comparisons and prevalence rates are also presented for the various medical factors considered. Disenchantment and/or economic considerations appear to be the most important factors associated with attrition. Medical factors do not contribute substantially to attrition. (Author)
