description:
This round of the Youth Attitude Tracking Survey, a series of surveys begun in 1975, investigated youth attitudes towards military enlistment and their perceptions of the military and recruitment marketing activities. The survey also elicited opinions on governme nt and public affairs issues: whether the United States ought to have much more military power than any other nation in the world, whether women should be required to register for the draft, and whether the United States should go to war to defend its own economic interests, protect the rights of United States citizens, or protect the rights of other countries. The survey explored the respondents' plans for the future, including plans for college and interest in participating in either the Reserve Officers Training Corps (ROTC) or military training after college. In addition, the survey explored the respondents' media habits. Other information collected by the survey includes age, sex, race, Hispanic origin, marital status, current school enrollment status, highest grade completed, type of school and diploma, grades usually received in high school, participation in the junior ROTC in high school, whether the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery test (ASVAB) was taken, current employment status, and parents' education.
