Abstract : This is one of eight reports that provide background information, descriptions of survey approach, assessments of data quality, and preliminary results from the 1985 summer administration of the ARI Survey of Army Recruits, familiarly known as the New Recruit Survey (NRS). This is Volume 2 of a two- volume set of crosstables describing the attitudes, demographics, and service- related characteristics of non-prior-service Army recruits entering active duty during the summer of 1985. Tabulation volumes contain an introduction to the 1985 NRS report series and project overview; a chapter explaining how to read and interpret the tabulations; a set of two-way tables of NRS items crossed with five banner variables; and four technical appendixes including each of the four 1985 NRS instruments. Separate tabulation volumes were produced for each of the three Army components, the Regular Active Army (RA), the Army Reserve (USAR), and Army National Guard (ARNG). Tabulations reflect data gathered during the 1985 summer administration of the NRS. The crossing variables used in each tabulation volume include demographic and service-related characteristics and vary across the different components.
