Abstract : On the basis of draft vulnerability, the 1970 and 1971 Air Force enlistee accessions were categorized into four groups defined in terms of age and draft pressure. The groups designated as high, moderate, low draft-pressure and draft non-eligible, were compared on various dimensions. Compared to the 1970 accessions, the 1971 accessions demonstrated less aptitude and were less well-educated. There was an appreciable rise in the number of accessions having 11 years or less of education; especially in the low-draft-pressure and draft non-eligible groups. The data suggest that, under present incentive enlistment programs, zero-draft manpower resources at the higher aptitude levels may be more limited. (Author)
