Abstract : The major objectives of the study are to develop estimates of Military Manpower, Navy budget, under a draft-free environment, and to describe the 'quality' of a future Navy volunteer force. Part 1 develops levels of true volunteers for 1970, through analysis of draft lottery data. Projections are then made to present estimates of volunteer levels which can be expected in 1972 and 1973, in the absence of a draft. Part 2, through regression analysis, establishes a relationship between rate of true volunteerism, and military and civilian pay. Part 3 explores the implication of varying military pay considerations upon the number and mental makeup of a volunteer force. (Author)
