Abstract : The study deals with the experimental application of a structural job analysis procedure to enlisted and officer billets in the navy, with particular reference to its potential use for the two-fold purposes of relating naval compensation for billet incumbents to that of the compensation for civilian jobs with similar characteristics, and of assessing its utility for allocating naval billets to pay grades. The job analysis instrument used was the Position Analysis Questionnaire (PAQ), which can be used for deriving job factor scores for individual jobs. The PAQ was used to analyze 607 enlisted and 249 officer billets. (Modified author abstract)
