For example, if the average AFQT score of a cohort of new recruits is 70, the average quality of those same individuals who are still in service at YOS 5 is still 70. The average AFQT is still 70 when those same individuals who stay in service reach YOS 10, and it is still 70 when those individuals who are still in service reach YOS 15 (Asch and Warner, 1994). In other words, the military seems to retain the same quality of personnel it recruits. Therefore, declines in recruit quality are not overcome within a given cohort.

Under TRIAD, with its larger increase in military/civilian pay, the increase in reenlistment from FY99 to FY00 is larger.

The study found that those with higher AFQT scores were able to kill more hostile aircraft in accordance with tactics in the simulations than those with lower scores. Those with higher AFQT scores also performed better on other mission related tasks. As another example, Junor and Oi (1996) found that Navy personnel quality, of which AFQT score is a key component, strongly affected ship readiness scores. The research findings imply that a decline in personnel quality will translate into a decline in performance among military personnel.
