Abstract : Draftees and enlistees in the USN, all of whom had come into the Navy in October 1965 without prior military service, were compared as of 30 June 1966 on thirteen variables (primary and secondary dependency, citizenship, year of birth, BTB and special test scores, and rate). Draftees were found to have included a significantly higher percentage than enlistees with primary and secondary dependents, and a significantly larger percentage of immigrant aliens who had declared their intention of becoming citizens. Draftees also were significantly older than enlistees, but had not achieved as high a rate (pay grade) as enlistees. Draftees had received lower test scores than enlistees; the differences between all but two of the eight tests (Clerical and Electronics Technician Selection Tests) were statistically significant. All of the statistically significant differences between draftees and enlistees, except for perhaps primary dependency, were of such small magnitude as to be of little or no practical significance.
