Abstract:

The success of any military organization in accomplishing its mission depends largely on the quality of the personnel who constitute the organization. The National Longitudinal Survey NLS and the Profile of American Youth 1980 Nationwide Administration of the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery offer a wealth of information on the behavior and characteristics of a nationally representative sample of young men and women. This thesis has developed a data base extract designed primarily for analysts seeking to obtain insights on the current and projected quality of military personnel. Instructions for using the data base extract are provided, along with a brief description of the survey and the computer program SPSS and a selected group of frequency distributions from the extract.
