Abstract:

The report describes a prediction technique and a computer program developed from a model designed to help the Air Force understand the enlistment behavior of volunteers and to assess the feasibility of an all volunteer armed force. The model determines the supply of volunteers as a function of the expected net advantages of military life relative to civilian life, the unemployment rate in the civilian economy, and draft pressure.
