Abstract : Declining pools of service-eligible men and increasing demands upon military manpower have forced the armed services to consider expanding the role of military women. The success or failure of increased utilization can only be determined through an assessment of actual data. Without such information policy becomes arbitrary and successful gender integration less likely. Using the Survival Tracking File (longitudinal) as a primary source of data, the Total Population of Navy enlisted females, both Attrites and those on active duty were examined to identify emerging trends. Frequency distributions and regression analyses revealed certain trends which warrant further investigation. The E-1 attrition rates in boot camp would suggest a need for better screening of applicants, and the major contribution of General Detail personnel to overall losses suggests further investigation of in-service working conditions and jobs as predictors of attrition.
