Abstract : Compensation managers must be able to project the effects of alternative compensation packages in order to compare the desirability of these packages. For this reason, several models have been developed to project the size and composition of the military enlisted force as a function of military compensation and other variables. The most widely used of the current generation of projection models is the Annualized Cost of Leaving (ACOL) model. This paper assesses the accuracy of the ACOL model projections for the Navy over the period FY 78-FY 80. Although the model's projections are found to be quite accurate, several modifications are introduced which improve its accuracy still further.
