Abstract
This paper was presented at a Symposium on the Profile of American Youth Study. The symposium was sponsored by the Division of Military Psychology at the 90th Annual Convention of the American Psychological Association in Washington, D.C., August 1982. The paper was subsequently published in Technical Memorandum 82-2, “The Profile of American Youth Study: Results and Implications,” Directorate of Accession Policy, Office of the Secretary of Defense, September 1982. In this paper, Mark Eitelberg and Zahava Doering explore the likely implications of the “Profile of American Youth,” a multimillion-dollar project, for policy-related research by placing the results in a social and military context. The project marks the first time a vocational aptitude test was administered to a nationally representative sample. The authors conclude by suggesting further study in non-military areas of interest. The paper includes a table showing information available in the National Longitudinal Survey (NLS) of Youth Labor Force Behavior by four categories: labor market experience; socioeconomic and human capital variables; social/psychological variables; and environmental variables.
