Abstract : This report describes the results of the 1986 Youth Attitude Tracking Study Ii conducted by the Research Triangle Institute. This report examines enlistment propensity, economic factors affecting propensity, economic factors affecting propensity, intentions and attitudes towards the military, enlistment incentives, advertising exposure and Service images, and information-seeking and recruiter contact. In addition to the descriptive tabulations, other analyses that simultaneously examine a set of variables for young males and young females are presented. 1985 and 1986 estimates of positive propensity to serve in the active military and Reserve components are presented in a table format. Only three statistically significant changes in propensity levels between 1985 and 1986 were found. Young females showed an increase in propensity toward serving in the Air Force and young males were more likely to express and unaided interest in 1986 compared to 1985.
