This round of the Youth Attitude Tracking Survey, a series of surveys begun in 1975, investigated youth attitudes towards military enlistment and their perceptions of the military and recruitment marketing activities. In addition, the survey gauged opinions on government and public affairs issues: whether the United States ought to have much more military power than any other nation in the world, whether women in the military should be allowed to volunteer for combat assignments, whether women should be required to register for the draft, and whether the United States should go to war to protect its own economic interests or the rights of other countries. Respondents were queried about current school enrollment status and education level, highest grade completed, type of school and diploma, and plans for college and financing a college education. Other questions asked about current and past employment status, reasons for working, satisfaction with current job, and the employment situation in the respondent's community. Additional background information gathered by the survey includes age, sex, race, Hispanic origin, marital status, type of housing, household composition, and parents' education.
