Abstract : Survival curves for NPS female recruits were estimated through eight years of service using the FY 1979 cross-sectional data base. Separate analyses were performed for Class A school attendees and non-A school attendees, holding constant the effects of age, educational level, and mental group. Mean survival times (the areas under the survival curves) were then calculated for each recruit profile. We found that no further screening based on expected months of service is feasible. This is largely due to the fact that the NPS female population is already highly screened.
