Department of Defense manpower analyses make use of both civilian and military administrative records and survey data. Klerman provides an overview of these data sources and discusses how they can be analyzed with currently underutilized data-matching strategies. Data-matching strategies have the potential for large payoffs in terms of better analysis for DoD, and DoD should work to streamline procedures for data matching before engaging in expensive new data-collection efforts.
