We estimate that the VSI/SSB software elevated separations by way of thirteen percent issues over and above what we'd have anticipated for team of workers who met the eligibility standards through the drawdown. We additionally chanced on that those that have been low-quality have been prone to settle for the VSI/SSB provide.

Because we estimate a probit model, the coefficient estimates must be transformed to get an estimate of the effect of the variable on the probability of being eligible. The transformed coefficient estimates are presented in the rightmost column. The results in the table indicate that those who were eligible in the Army tended to have lower AFQT scores, less education, and more years in their pay grade, suggesting slower promotion times. Thus, those who were eligible tended to be lower-quality. Specifically, scoring in the bottom half of the AFQT score distribution has the largest correlation with eligibility among the three quality variables we examined: Being in the bottom half of the distribution increased the likelihood of being eligible by 9 percentage points, an increase of 18 percent.
