Abstract : The Navy Separation/Retention survey (NSRS) is administered to Naval enlisted personnel at the point of reenlistment or separation, and to officers following a permanent change of station or prior to separation. The data allow manpower planners to anticipate the factors that influence decisions to stay m or leave the Navy. The Bureau of Naval Personnel (Pers 23) asked the Naval Postgraduate School, Systems Management Department to analyze and revise the NSRS to eliminate some problems that had been identified. This document describes the procedures used to revise the NSRS, the new survey items and scales, and recommendations for follow-on work to maintain a quality survey for the Navy.
