In this report, they focus on issues related to retaining cyber soldiers. They use data from the Army’s personnel files to determine how many new soldiers are likely to meet the qualifications for this new MOS, as well as their expected retention rates. Specifically, they apply 17C enlist- ment requirements to all soldiers to determine how many meet the standards. They also use data on civilian occupa- tions to determine the earnings these soldiers are likely to be offered based on their military cyber training. To do this, they use the American Community Survey (ACS) data on all workers in information technology (IT)–related occupations.
