The U.S. Army Research Institute (ARI) and the Office of the Deputy Chief of Staff for Personnel, U.S. Army, sponsored a Conference on Army Manpower Economics in Williamsburg, Virginia, on December 5-7, 1984. With the military's growing interest in economic research and the usefulness of econometric analyses in addressing military manpower issues, it was appropriate to assemble senior Army policy makers, leading academicians, and other researchers to discuss Army manpower research and policy issues. The collection of articles presented in this volume is a direct outgrowth of that conference.
