Abstract : The 1979 Reserve Force Studies Surveys were designed to provide the Office of the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense (Reserve Affairs) (ODASD-RA) and the Army Reserve Components with data that can support policy formulation and research on reserve force manning problems. Since the end of the draft, concern about the reserve forces has focused on the continuing declines in Selected Reserve personnel strength, particularly in the Army National Guard and Army Reserve where manpower shortfalls are most severe. The increased concern about reserve supply has led to the implementation of a range of different Selected Reserve programs in the past two years and additional programs are under discussion. However, analyses which identify the approach or mix of approaches which may be appropriate for addressing reserve force manning problems are limited. Data collected in the 1979 Reserve Force Studies Surveys will make possible analyses which focus on reserve force unit manning problems and the assessment of strategies for strength improvement.
