Experts believe that draft would require a larger number of accessions, since draftees and draft-motivated volunteers are more likely to leave military service than volunteers at their first opportunity.

We are able to compare retention behaviour and service lengths of draftees and volunteers in the same cohort by using data files consisting of enlistees during lottery draft years.
