Abstract : The overall objective of this research is to analyze the impact of wage and bonus increases on enlisted personnel as well as personnel behavior over time and sensitivity to the macroeconomic conditions. Two types of models are used: the Amortized Cost of Leaving (ACOL) maximum likelihood and the non-ACOL information theoretic Generalized Maximum Entropy (GME) method. The bonus experiments for the ACOL models are done in the traditional manner and a way to improve those is discussed. The experiments for the non-ACOL model are developed and studied here.
