Abstract : This thesis examines the effects of biodemographic, personal, tenure, economic, civilian, alternatives, and job related factors on the career orientation/turnover decisions of female Naval Officers. This study uses individual level data from the 1985 DOD Survey of Officer and Enlisted Personnel. A binary logit analysis was conducted on two groups of female officers to investigate the effects of the selected variables on short and long term career intentions. Logit analysis relates the likelihood of a female naval officer choosing to remain in service to specified turnover factors. The results high-light potential policy problems that may be addressed by manpower planners, to reduct turnover and increase career orientation of female naval officers. Keywords: Short term, Long term, Thesis.
