The objective of this study is to examine the impact of county-level economic conditions on the recruiting market for the U.S. Armed Forces. This thesis establishes and analyzes the relationship between various demographic variables and recruiting at the county-level. Previous research in this area has dealt with data from various sources and at an aggregated level. It has looked across states, and across time periods, with some studies mixing data on the pre-AVF era with data from the AVF era. Much of the prior research examines a demand issue by looking at those who have already entered military service. This study examines data on individual military applicants. The data on applicants was provided by DMDC for a three-year period, 1993-1995. The individual applicant data is then aggregated to the county-level for analysis and county characteristics are used to explain the variation in applicants across counties. This study is the first to examine the applicant file.
