Abstract : The study of Naval recruits was designed to investigate the relationships between sociometric status of individuals within recruit companies during basic training, and indices based on three types of data presumed to be relevant to individual adjustment: neuropsychiatric examinations, illness or sick bay attendance, and disciplinary offenses. Because it was felt that the findings might have implications for screening or classification procedures, the study was designed to determine, in addition, how early in training the expected relationships might appear.
