Abstract : This report describes the assessment of two sources of Marine Corps enlisted personnel data, the Headquarters Master File (HMF) and the Statistics File (STATs). The assessment encompasses how these data are created, updated, maintained, and used. Problems with each of these data are highlighted. The results from the assessment suggest that the HMF data are consistent and accurate. The STAT data for analytical and forecasting purposes should be minimized. Keywords: Personnel data; Manpower conservation; Force management; Manpower planning.
