Abstract:

Development of model for estimation of a high-tech market population is essential for determining an efficient allocation of recruiting resources. Using data from the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth NLSY, regression equations are used to estimate the probability that a 17 to 21 year old, high school graduate will scored high enough on the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery ASVAB to be classified into a high-tech rating. This probability is modeled as a function of sociodemographic variables including gender, raceethnicity, parents education, poverty status, income, residence in an urban area, and receipt of welfare payments. Best fit equations are developed in order to facilitate calculations of nationwide, county-level, high-tech market distributions. ASVAB, High-Tech, Recruiting, Classification.
