Abstract : This thesis examined socioeconomic profiles for the enlisted membership of the United States Army Reserve based upon personal and military background variables in an effort to identify market segments within the general population that provide potentially large sources of high quality, military manpower. Increased participation by females and older age accessions were examined as alternative means for expanding the manpower supply both quantitatively and qualitatively. The USAR membership was stratified by census regions and personal background variables including gender, racial-ethnic groups, entry age, and prior service status to examine their net effect upon the demographic composition of the force. Keywords: Enlisted women; Reserve manpower; Accessions; Enlistment motivations; Socioeconomic profiles; Recruiting; United States Army Reserve; Theses.
