Abstract : This study was conducted to determine empirically the demand and supply of high quality sailors in the U.S Navy. The Navy's demand for high quality sailors is presented in two dimensions; the entry level demand and utilization demand. Three forms of enlistment supply models are developed for high school diploma graduate enlistments and for high quality enlistments using ordinary least squares regression methodology. The demand and supply results are then applied to an increasing size Navy scenario. A two-tier pay system is implied from the application of the supply models since the high quality enlistees are less responsive to pay changes than are high school diploma graduate enlistees.
