Abstract : Data on the Federal Criminal Investigating Series were taken from the Central Personnel Data File (the main repository for employment history and demographic information of Federal civilian employees), for 1977-1980. Four year trends in the size and race/sex composition of the full-time series population were developed. It was found that the total population size was rather stable during the past four years, but that various race/sex groups experienced considerable growth or decline. The trend data were used as the basis of projections for the 1981-1985 period. Among the assumptions upon which the projections were based was that the 1981-1985 period would be similar to the preceeding four years; probable divergences were pointed out, and their effects speculated upon. The usefulness of data such as those examined in this paper for purposes of forecasting and human resources planning was considered, and determined to be positive, if incomplete.
