This report presents results of efforts to develop models of the enlistment decision making process, focusing on the enlistment intentions and behaviors of 16 to 20 year old American males. It is based on survey data collected between October 1986 and January 1988 from 2,731 pairs of young men and their parents as part of the Army Communications Objectives Measurement System ACOMS survey, and augmented by enlistment data obtained from Military Entrance Processing Station MEPS data files. The modeling effort expanded the hierarchy of effects model and is used to develop the ACOMS survey. Separate models of Army enlistment were developed based on youth and linked parent youth data. Additional analyses developed models of general military enlistment, again utilizing youth and linked parent youth data.
