Abstract:

"This Note describes the computerized sample selection procedures developed at RAND for use in the 1983 Survey of Military Applicants. The survey provides information on the implementation of the Enlistment Bonus Test, the characteristics distinguishing applicants who enlist from those who do not, and the appeal of alternative hypothetical enlistment options. The computerized sample selection procedures substantially improved those used in the initial Applicant Survey in 1981. Computerization reduced the lag time between application and survey interview, helped to increase the completed interview rate, and essentially eliminated the need for surveying respondents at basic training. Future Applicant Surveys will employ the computerized procedures developed at RAND. This Note explains those procedures in detail and provides the documentation required for their use in future surveys."
