No net assessment of the overall military capabilities of one nation vs those of another nation would be meaningful without a detailed evaluation of the defense manpower of both nations -- their major characteristics, similarities, dissimilarities, strengths, and weaknesses. In the case of the United States, the collection, analysis and organization of data on defense manpower tends to be a relatively straigthforward process, but Soviet defense manpower is seldom studied in depth because the process is generally quite difficult, time-consuming, and demanding. In this context, a seminar on Soviet defense manpower was planned and conducted by the General Electric Center for Advanced Studies GE-TEMPO for the Director of Net Assessment, Office of the Secretary of Defense OSDNA, and the Assistant Secretary of Defense, Manpower and Reserve Affairs ASDM and RA on January 28, 1977. The overall objectives of this seminar were to highlight some of the major problems involved in assessing Soiet defense manpower and to discuss some of the approaches to these problems.
