Abstract:

The 1980 YATS conducted 5217 interviews with young males in the Spring. In Fall 1980, YATS included females for the first time, interviewing 5111 males and 5252 females in that wave. The Spring wave marked a significant reversal of the downward trend in propensity observed across the first eight waves of the study. The Spring 1980 data supported the hypothesis of an inverse relationship between propensity and employment and job market perceptions. It also revealed a significant positive shift in the collective perceptions and attitudes of 16 to 21 year old males towards a draft registration. Again in the Fall 1980 wave an interest in military service appears to be linked to young peoples reported employment and job market perception.
