ABSTRACT
Markov Analysis (MA) may be used to examine the movement of personnel into, within, and out of the organization. After briefly reviewing and illustrating MA, specific applications to human resource administration are suggested. Potential limitations of MA applications may place rather stringent constraints on their appropriateness and usefulness in human resource administration.
