Attrition is a word that can be used in many different contexts to mean several different things.
One typical usage of the word is when a particular group of subjects has been selected for a study of any kind, or for a group discussion, and several people drop out during the course of the study. At such a time, it can be said that due to attrition, conclusive results could not be reached.
Attrition is also the word used when there has been a dramatic reduction in the population of employees in a company, due to certain external uncontrollable factors, like for example, a better offer from a competitor.
Another meaning of attrition is when a solid starts to wear down or break down due to friction, leading to a reduction in effectiveness.
In all the contexts described above, attrition means a 'reduction in effectiveness of functioning due to a reduction in population, or due to wearing down'.

Attrition is friction, erosion, or rubbing off. It can also mean wearing away. It can change meaning when used with other words.
