Effective recruiting in the youth market for manpower requires that the Department of Defense DoD and the individual Services have reliable, valid, and timely recruit market data. Such data should describe the backgrounds, attitudes, and motivations of young men and women, and their intentions to serve in the military. Since 1975, the Youth Attitude Tracking Study YATS has provided recurit market data from non-military youth aged 16 to 21 about serving in the active duty military. In 1983, the YATS survey was reconfigured as YATS II to include a sample of 22-29 year old males and questions about service in the Reserve Components. This report describes the 1985 YATS II study conducted by the Research Triangle Institute with the aid of Amrigon Enterprises, Inc. Data for the study consist of responses to a 30-minute, computer-assisted telephone interview from a national sample of participants in three market groups young males aged 16-21 years, older males aged 22-29 years, and females aged 16-21 years. Results are based on interviews from 5,478 young males, 1,180 older males, and 3,301 females.
