Summary
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. In addition, the survey elicited opinions on government and public affairs issues: whether the United States ought to have much more military power than any other nation in the world, whether the United States should go to war to protect its own economic interests or the rights of other countries, whether the United States military should intervene in Bosnia or be involved in peace-keeping missions like the one in Somalia or potentially in Haiti, and whether women should be required to register for the draft or be allowed to volunteer for combat assignments. Respondents were asked if they had taken the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery test (ASVAB), and those attending or planning to attend college were questioned about their interest in participating in the Reserve Officers Training Corps (ROTC) or military training after college. 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, plans for college, interest in pursuing certain occupations, current employment status, and parents' education
