A statistical analysis was conducted to initially assess the effectiveness of the experimental program, RTC CREDO, to counter first-term enlisted attrition in the Navy. Cross-tabulation, discriminant, and multiple regression analyses were performed to examine various experimental and control groupings and their observed attrition. The results of this study were tenative and inconclusive because of the recency of the experiment. Indications for future research were made, which, with the passage of time and accumulation of more data, will enable fuller and more comprehensive studies of the effectiveness of RTC CREDO to be made.
