The Department of Defense (DoD) operates hundreds of military bases and similar installations that host military units and support their daily operations, providing services such as housing, utilities, and grounds maintenance. In 2016, the four service branches allocated $25 billion—about 4 percent of DoD’s budget—to the costs of such services, called base operations support (BOS). This report explores characteristics of bases, such as their size, geographic location, and the mission of the units they serve, and uses statistical methods to assess the relationship between those characteristics and BOS costs.
