To better understand the factors that shaped the current representation of Hispanics in the higher ranks of the Navy officers corps, and to identify effective interventions for increased long term retention of a diverse body of officers. This study will address the flowing questions:
1. How does the retention and promotion rates of Hispanic officers compare with that of Non-Hispanic officers within each military service, and across all services?
2. What factors are more likely to explain any differences in retention and promotion rates of Hispanic officers compared with that of Non-Hispanic officers within each military service, and across all services?
3. What are the main studies, approaches and findings in the existing literature on the labor market performance of Hispanics in the civilian labor market?
4. What are the data sources that track the civilian market performance of college educated Hispanics, the group that is most comparable with that of Hispanic officers? Further, what are the comparative advantages and disadvantages of each data set in allowing the Navy to conduct a quantitative analysis of the labor market performance of civilian Hispanic college educated compared to the performance of Hispanic officers in the Navy?
