An Exploratory Study of Enlistment Incentives Among Junior College Students.
Korman, Abraham K.; And Others
A questionnaire designed to assess reaction to possible enlistment incentives was administered to 100 junior college students. A factor-analysis of the measure indicated the importance both of traditional tangible incentives and of the "newer" incentives of control over one's work life. The data also indicated that: a) individuals term low socioeconomic levels were less attracted to the Navy overall than those from middle-or-upper levels, and b) the traditional incentives were more important for the low socioeconomic respondents while the newer incentives were more important for those from the upper levels.
