Abstract : This thesis investigates the relationship between Department of Defense oriented corporations and commercially oriented corporations, along with the government and commercially oriented business segments of these same corporations. The data elements of backlog, net sales, operating profits, and identifiable assets are examined, and the methodology for deriving these data elements from the SEC 10K reports in their total and segmented forms is explained. The analyses of variance on the unsegmented data elements determined no difference between corporation groups, however analyses of segmented data elements resulted in significant variations. Segmented data appear to be necessary to explain the variations due to either type of corporation or time period. Keywords: Theses; Analysis of variance; Data bases; Financial structure.
