This Note describes a dataset that integrates training-related information from a variety of military and civilian sources, at the military occupational specialty (MOS) level of detail. The database describes all Army MOS authorized as of fiscal year 1990, including personnel management statistics, enlistment prerequisites and incentives, tasks, training requirements and costs, and "crosswalks" to civilian occupations and educational programs. It documents the database and illustrates the data to describe Army occupational structure and training. It also discusses potential uses of the data for supporting analyses of training and personnel structure alternatives.
