Abstract:

This report presents the results of the third adult poll in a series that looked at images of occupations, advice given to youth about options after high school, favorability of the military and knowledge of the military. The audience profiled in this survey was the population of influencers, and included American adults ages 22 to 85 years old. Interviewing was conducted via computer assisted telephone interviews CATI during the period of January 18 to January 28, 2002. Nine out of 10 adult Americans had very positive or positive images of people serving full-time in the active duty military 93, and people serving part-time in the National Guard or Reserves 89. The option that adults were most likely to advise after graduating from high school was attend a four-year college or university 91 or attend a trade, technical, vocational or community college 82. Sixty-six percent of adults reported that they would recommend military service.
