Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO updated certain information that it provided in an earlier report on military and federal civilian disposable income comparisons.

GAO provided information using January 1985 pay rates, although the update did not reflect the administration's requests for a 3-percent military pay raise and a 5-percent cut in civil service pay. Disposable income estimates rested on numerous simplifying assumptions about pay, family size, and taxes and were not intended to be representative of a typical military or civil service individual.
