<!-- *********************** ABOUT PEACECORPSWIKI *****************
  
[http://www.peacecorpsjournals.com/manual/ Peace Corps Manual] [http://www.peacecorpsjournals.com/manual/MS284.html Section 284] establishes the policies and procedures governing the circumstances under which a Peace Corps Volunteer's service may end prior to the completion of service date. An ET occurs when Volunteer "cannot or should not remain in service until his or her completion of service (COS) date." The most current report available is the [http://peacecorpswiki.org/images/FY2009ETdatasummary.pdf FY 2009 ET Data Summary]. Currently, out of 100 volunteers who begin their service, about 35 will Early Terminate sometime before their completion of service. (Source: [http://www.peacecorpswiki.org/reports/ET_Report.pdf "Early Termination in the Peace Corps", Appendix A] )
 
  
There are four types of early termination:
+
-->   
  
* '''Resignation:''' A resignation is a decision made by a Volunteer that he/she no longer wishes to continue in Peace Corps service.
 
  
* '''Medical Separation:''' If a Volunteer has or develops a medical condition that Peace Corps cannot medically accommodate or resolve within forty-five (45) days, the Volunteer will be medically separated. This decision is made by the Office of Medical Services (OMS) in consultation with the Peace Corps Medical Officer and, if needed, appropriate medical consultants.
+
<!-- *********************** STATISTICS ***************** -->   
 
+
<!-- *********************** THINGS TO DO TO HELP ***************** -->   
* '''Administrative Separation:''' Pursuant to the [http://www.peacecorps.gov/multimedia/pdf/policies/ms101.pdf Peace Corps Act, 22 USC 2504(i)], the service of a Volunteer may be terminated at any time at the pleasure of the President. The authority of the President to terminate service has been delegated to the Director of the Peace Corps. Accordingly, the Director, or anyone to whom the Director delegates such authority, may separate a Volunteer at any time purely at the discretion of the deciding official and as otherwise expressly provided herein.
+
<br clear="all"/>
 
+
* '''Interrupted Service:''' A Volunteer may be separated with interrupted service status if the Country Director determines that circumstances beyond the control of the Volunteer make it necessary for the Volunteer to leave his or her present assignment.
+
 
+
==Rough Estimate==
+
 
+
A back-of-the-envelope calculation can be done as follows: Peace Corps currently accepts about 5,000 volunteers per year. If no volunteer leaves early then after 27 months a total of 11,250 volunteers should be serving right now (27 months * 5,000 per year) - from those volunteers just beginning service to those just ending. Any volunteers who ETed during that time would make the number smaller. If 10% of the volunteers have ETed then the 11,250 number would be 10% less; if 50% ETed then the 11,250 number would be half, etc. According to the Peace Corps website there are currently 7,500 volunteers serving around the world right now. This means about 3,750 volunteers out of the 11,250 total possible have Early Terminated, equaling 33%. (3,750 volunteers who ETed out of 11,250 total) This is consistent with more precise estimates.
+
 
+
==Determining ET Rates==
+
 
+
Before 1981, Peace Corps used the '''V Year method''', standing for 'Volunteer-Year'. It is the number of ET's by an average volunteer during one year of service. Since most volunteers successfully complete their service, which is longer than one year, this number would be a "fraction of an ET". If the V-Year ET Rate was 0.20 (per year) we would expect about 2 volunteers out of 10 to ET per year, or about 1 volunteer out of 10 in a six-month period.
+
 
+
In 1981, at the request of the General Accounting Office, the agency's Office of Special Service began to report Volunteer attrition, using the '''Cohort Method'''. This method addresses the question: 'If X number of people enter Peace Corps service during a given time period, how many actually complete their service?"
+
 
+
A cohort is defined as all trainees who enter on duty during a Fiscal Year (i.e. the Class of FY90), and the cohort attrition rate as the percent of Volunteers and Trainees within a cohort who do not complete service (e.g. 29% of the Class of FY90 did not complete service). Cohort attrition is also referred to as 'class of' attrition rate (where 'class of' refers to all trainees entering on duty during a Fiscal Year).
+
 
+
Cohort ET Rates tend to be at least double the ET reported by posts using the V Year chart method. While these latter rates (V-Year) are essential for budget calculations purposes, they provide an incomplete picture of overall attrition. Unlike the V Year chart method used by posts to calculate T and V ET Rates, the cohort method provides a complete picture of attrition because it follows people over their full tour (meaning, for most Volunteers, a 24 to 27 month period).
+
 
+
In the early 2000's, Peace Corps switched formulas to an '''Annual Method''' in reported ET data. The 'ET Rate' using the annual method is the number of PCVs/Ts who separated from the Peace Corps during the fiscal year divided by the ''total'' number of trainees and volunteers who served ''at any time'' during the fiscal year. Thus, an individual who served for one day and another individual who served for the full fiscal year are counted equally for the denominator of the fraction. This method addresses the question: 'Of the ''n'' total number of individuals who served at any time during a given time 12-month period, how many early terminate in that same time span?"
+
 
+
Because the different methods in reporting ET data use different data and calculations, care must be taken so as not to inappropriately compare the two.  As the Cohort Method spans over a twenty-seven month period (or more) while the Annual method is strictly a twelve-month period, the results do not lend to comparability.

[[Image:ETFormulaComparison.JPG|center|thumb|350px|This graphic demonstrates the difference between calculating ET Rates by the Cohort and Annual Methods.]]
+
 
+
 
+
===Converting Between Methods===
+
 
+
Since an exact conversion can only be made with raw data, the following will be an approximate conversion between the two methods based on the following assumptions:
+
 
+
* Every year had the same number of volunteers who started service in that year - in other words, every Cohort group was the same size.
+
* Within a given year volunteers entered Peace Corps service randomly between January 1st and December 31st .
+
* Full service was exactly 27 months.
+
* Those who Early Terminated did so randomly, anywhere from one day of training to right before their anticipated COS date.
+
 
+
These assumptions make every cohort identical and every year identical. While it may be an idealized model, for its simplicity it gives a reasonably accurate conversion from one method to the other.

Since 1961, the Peace Corps has shared with the world America's most precious resource—its people. Peace Corps Volunteers serve in 73 countries in Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, Central and South America, Europe, and the Middle East. Collaborating with local community members, Volunteers work in areas like education, youth outreach and community development, the environment, and information technology.

Serving for two years in the Peace Corps may seem like a long time, but Close of Service may come faster than you expect. Volunteers can make the most of their time in-country through well organized material, collaboration and knowledge sharing. <span style="color: red;">[[Current Volunteers]]</span> should still keep in mind their own safety and security, cultural sensitivity, and the fact they are in-country representing the United States. See Manual [http://www.peacecorpsjournals.com/manual/MS204.html Section 204] regarding Volunteer conduct and [http://www.peacecorpsjournals.com/manual/MS543.html Section 543] regarding Volunteer use of information technology tools.

==Historical ET Rates==
+
 
+
Historical ET Rates depends on which formula you used in calculating them. Prior to 2000 Peace Corps used the '''Cohort Method''' in calculating ET Rates, and Historical ET Rates were reported using the same method. Since then, Peace Corps has switched to the '''Annual Method''' and recently published Historical ET Rates have presented data to correspond to the current method.

Statistics




Since 1961, the Peace Corps has shared with the world America's most precious resource—its people. Peace Corps Volunteers serve in 73 countries in Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, Central and South America, Europe, and the Middle East. Collaborating with local community members, Volunteers work in areas like education, youth outreach and community development, the environment, and information technology.

Serving for two years in the Peace Corps may seem like a long time, but Close of Service may come faster than you expect. Volunteers can make the most of their time in-country through well organized material, collaboration and knowledge sharing. Current Volunteers should still keep in mind their own safety and security, cultural sensitivity, and the fact they are in-country representing the United States. See Manual Section 204 regarding Volunteer conduct and Section 543 regarding Volunteer use of information technology tools.

Your time as a Peace Corps Volunteer doesn't end when your two years of service are over. The time you spent in the Peace Corps will continue to enrich your life, both personally and professionally, for many years. And, in keeping with the Peace Corps' third goal, you'll have new opportunities every day to share what you've learned in the Peace Corps with fellow Americans.
