Abstract : This report focuses on American demographic trends and speculates about the possible effects of these trends on national security over the next quarter-century. Four areas of interest are examined: (1) qualified manpower; (2) defense spending; (3) military effectiveness; and (4) international standing. The report concludes with a list of possible changes that could occur in these four areas by the year 2010. A 'Note on the Canadian Experience' is also included.
