Abstract : The research identified a series of factor structures of enlistment incentives. A four-factor solution was found for the total sample: Self-determination; vocational training; enlistment bonus; and general education. The factor structure was generally replicated among market segments denoted as potential enlistees and non-enlistees. While the Army solution resembled the solution for the total sample, the Navy and Air Force solutions differed from this solution and from each other. (Modified author abstract)
