Abstract:

A data base was established to which characteristics of the all-volunteer force could be compared. If the hypothesis is tenable that the sample of 1973 enlistees used in this study represents the qualitative characteristics of the all-volunteer force, current aptitude levels suggest sufficient quality for the majority of Air Force jobs. Analysis of the data resulted in the following conclusions a There has been a gradual loss of high aptitude people over a three-year period. If this trend continues, there will be a probable need to offer further incentives to enlist individuals who can perform in the more critical aptitude areas. b There will be no dramatic increase in the proportion of Negroes in the all-volunteer force. Air Force has enlisted, and continues to enlist, a proportion of Negroes equal to, or greater than, the proportion of Negroes in the population. c Under present reenlistment policy considerations, Air Force will remain an excellent source from which industry may draw skilled personnel in over 200 job types.
