Title: Predictors of Career and Family Dysfunction in Young Adults Enlisting in the United States Navy
Synopsis: This study will use data from questions asked of military recruits, in order to determine the value of this information for the prediction of later career and family problems.
Overall Project Objective: Describe potential predictors of career and family dysfunction in U.S. Navy enlistees by linkage of the Sailor's Health Inventory Program (SHIP), demographic data, and other databases containing adverse career and family events.
Status/Results to Date: Results may contribute to development of useful questions for the future Recruit Assessment Program instrument. Challenging access to data was secured; analyses were recently completed and a manuscript is under development.
