Abstract : The primary purpose of this project is to provide an evaluation of the impact of the people programs on retention. We examine both theoretically and empirically the impact of assignment policy on the retention of first-termers, second-termers and career airman for the years 1974 to 1980. This time series analysis is undertaken at an individual level, though some aggregate statistics are considered. At the individual level a probit specification will be used to carry out the analysis. This analysis will allow the Air Force to determine not only the impact of the people programs on reenlistment rates, but also if the cost of implementing these programs will be offset by the benefits which, to a large extent, consist of the savings in training costs of new personnel.
