Abstract : This thesis develops equations, software and applications for logistic regression techniques pointed to the estimation of officer attrition rates in support of manpower planning models, using length of service and grade as carrier variables. It is seen that the length of service scale must be partitioned into segments so that linear approximations to the rate process are tenable. This done, the direction and amount of attrition rate change can be approximated and interpretations can be made for the various occupational communities.
