Abstract
This report calculates Canadian Forces (CF) attrition rates by calendar year and by Years of Service (YOS) to determine what patterns exist in CF attrition. In particular, attrition data for the past two years are compared with corresponding data from 1982 onwards to determine whether or not the nature of attrition has changed recently in the CF. By examining ten selected military occupations that represent approximately 25% of the Non-Commissioned Member (NCM) and 60% of the officer populations, it is demonstrated that attrition rates in 1997 and 1998 did not deviate dramatically from historical averages. Lingering effects from the Forces Reduction Program (FRP) complicate this analysis.
