Abstract : Effective targeting of recruiting efforts requires that the Department of Defense understands the backgrounds, attitudes and motivations of young men and women, and their intentions to serve in the military. In the past, two survey series provided data on these issues: the Youth Attitude Tracking Study (YATS) and the Reserve Component Attitude Study (RCAS). The Youth Attitude Tracking Study II (YATS II) is a reconfigured survey begun in 1983 that merges the former YATS and the non-prior service portion of the RCAS into a single study. This volume presents supplementary tabulations for the 1986 YATS II. These tabulations show the distributions of responses to the questions asked during the 30-minute telephone interview for the study.
