Survival modeling on the job

I often joke that some bureaucracies are so tight that you can’t get hired unless one of their employees dies.  For a lot of the feds, it ain’t a joke.   The good news for grads in math, stats, and management science is that the staffs in Carter Administration outfits like the Department of Energy were all hired as a cohort, so they’re all dying or retiring right now.
