Abstract : This report summarizes the education credential tier system used to reduce the likelihood of first-term attrition among enlisted personnel. In addition, the reliability of coding credentials within their assigned tiers as well as the appropriateness of credential categorization is assessed. Finally, multivariate analyses of sociodemographic characteristics related to attrition are presented to demonstrate the confluence of personal factors associated with attrition.
