This memorandum summarizes a comparison of the social background of volunteer soldiers, derived from the Army Quarterly Survey of November 1974, with characteristics of the population of eligible military age derived from U. S. census documents. This comparison will serve as an indication of the degree to which the volunteer Army is indeed socially representative of the society which it defends.
