Abstract:

An examination of Navy Human Resources Management Survey data for 37,700 sailors reveals very significantly differing attitudes between those under age 26 and those 26 and over for questions relating to supervisory leadership, peer leadership, equal opportunity and drugs. A significant age-related difference in attitudes is also found for the 31-35 age group this is particularly marked among Black sailors. There is some evidence to indicate that young sailors feel more positive toward their peer leadership than do older sailors, especially in nonwork-related matters. Author
