This thesis develops a personal-computer-based PC-based model to utilize research results for the estimation of male high quality HQ and high- tech HITEC qualified military available QMA population. HQ QMA are 17-21 year-old high school graduates scoring above the 50th percentile on the Armed Forces Qualification Test AFQT. HITEC QMA are the HQ QMA who are mentally eligible for highly technical military occupations. Research underlying the PC- based model estimates multinomial logistic regression equations using the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth Labor Force Behavior NLSY data over a set of explanatory variables for which data are available at the county level. Using the PC-based model, nationwide county-level measures of regional male recruit markets by size and mental quality for 1990 through 2010 are estimated. The PC-based model and the nationwide market estimates may be useful in recruiting management decisions such as resource allocation and recruiter goaling.
