Abstract:

This report summarizes our analysis of whether individual augmentation (IA) deployment is affecting retention rates for Navy enlisted personnel and junior officers. Our analytical approach was to compare retention rates between those personnel who have been deployed via IA to equivalent cohorts of Navy personnel who have not been on an IA deployment.
