Abstract
THE DECISION TO RE-ENLIST OR NOT TO RE-ENLIST IS A FUNCTION OF SEVERAL CONFLICTING ECONOMIC, PSYCHOLOGICAL AND SOCIOLOGICAL FACTORS. THE APPROACH OUTLINED IN THIS PROPOSAL SUGGESTS A MULTIVARIATE - MULTIDISCIPLINARY REGRESSION MODEL TO ANALYZE THE DECISION MAKING PROCESS. IN THIS MODEL, FAMILY SATISFACTION IS CONSIDERED AS ONE OF THE IMPORTANT EXPLANATORY VARIABLES. IT IS FURTHER PROPOSED TO ANALYZE REASONS OF FAMILY DISSATISFACTION. IT IS POSTULATED THAT FAMILY DISSATISFACTION MAY BE THE RESULT OF LOW FAMILY INCOME. AN EXPLORATORY ANALYSIS IS SUGGESTED TO FIND OUT IF FAMILY INCOME IS LOW BECAUSE THE ARMY SPOUSE IS AT A DISADVANTAGE IN THE LABOR MARKET.
