As a method of facilitating the protection drawdown, the dept of protection provided eligible body of workers both the Voluntary Separation Incentive or the exact Separation Bonus (VSI/SSB), a software to urge mid-career body of workers to split from provider. key questions for policymakers interested in the luck of this software are (1) Did this system result in colossal separations (over and above what would routinely occur)? and (2) Did this system result in marginal performers to depart? during this file we use information on military enlisted group of workers to respond to those questions. We estimate that the VSI/SSB software elevated separations by means of thirteen percent issues over and above what we'd have anticipated for group of workers who met the eligibility standards through the drawdown. We additionally chanced on that those that have been low-quality have been prone to settle for the VSI/SSB supply.

Specifically, personnel in each year have similar demographic characteristics: race and ethnicity, gender, and age. However, the quality of personnel is a little higher in the test year. Personnel in the test year also had more years of service, on average, and more time in pay grade. The latter no doubt reflects the fact that, on average, the time an individual was required to wait prior to promotion increased during the drawdown.

Because we estimate a probit model, the coefficient estimates must be transformed to get an estimate of the effect of the variable on the probability of being eligible. The transformed coefficient estimates are presented in the rightmost column. The results in the table indicate that those who were eligible in the Army tended to have lower AFQT scores, less education, and more years in their pay grade, suggesting slower promotion times. Thus, those who were eligible tended to be lower-quality. Specifically, scoring in the bottom half of the AFQT score distribution has the largest correlation with eligibility among the three quality variables we examined: Being in the bottom half of the distribution increased the likelihood of being eligible by 9 percentage points, an increase of 18 percent.
