Socioeconomic representativeness is one of the major equity issues in manpower procurement. The relationship between the military and civilian society was a fundamental question of vital interest to the nation's founding fathers. This has continued to be a concern throughout the following years. Additionally, representativeness as it relates to equality of opportunity has become an increasing social concern. This thesis examines the socioeconomic characteristics of Navy personnel who enlisted during the period between July 1, 1974, and September 30, 1979. The purpose was to determine if any trends in the socioeconomic characteristics were apparent during that period. The socioeconomic characteristics of the fiscal year 1977 Navy enlistees were compared to the U.S. population of 1977. This was done to determine the socioeconomic representativeness of the Navy's enlistees in that year.
