    Military retiree residence preferences through the scope of civilian employment by Rice, Grant

    Military retirees, regarded by the Department of Defense as eligible for pension after twenty years of active duty service, constitute a significant portion of the U.S. labor force, yet it’s unclear which industries they work in after transitioning to the civilian labor force. This research paper has discovered a positive correlation in residence statistics of military retirees in regions with high occurrences of engineering and architecture, business and finance, computer and mathematics, and food service occupations. This study found that the presence of more physically demanding occupations such as nonfarm labor, construction and extraction, and buildings and grounds maintenance occupations have a negative effect on retiree population. Mean annual wages within the identified labor markets have similar effects on retiree population as the number of jobs within those professions.
