Abstract : The Army faces a serious challenge to its manpower quality and quantity. The decline in recruit aptitude appears to have led to diminished manpower effectiveness as measured by on the job performance. This report documents the magnitude of the decline in Army recruit quality and shows its impact on job performance. A research approach for determining optimal quality mixes, and what it might cost to restore Army recruit quality to pre-AVF levels, is discussed.
