Abstract:

Effective targeting of recruiting efforts requires that the Department of Defense understands the backgrounds, attitudes and motivations of young men and women, and their intentions to serve in the military. In the past, two survey series provided data on these issues the Youth Attitude Tracking Study YATS and the Reserve Component Attitude Study RCAS. The Youth Attitude Tracking Study II YATS II is a reconfigured survey begun in 1983 that merges the former YATS and the non-prior service portion of RCAS into a single study. This volume presents supplementary tabulations for the 1985 YATS II. These tabulations show the distributions of responses to the questions asked during the 30-minute telephone interview for the study. Analyses are based on interviews from 5,478 young males, 1,180 older males, and 3,301 females. Data tables for the 1985 YATS II survey present two types of information Marginal item distributions for each market group, and Cross tabulations of items with the key analysis variable of composite propensity to serve in the military.
