The supplementary report serves as documentation for the summary version (CE 005 383) and provides greater detail regarding study procedures and results. The investigation concerns the impact Army service has had on the quality of life of a representative sample of young Americans, which has been ascertained through interviews, data collection, and analysis of the Army's Project TALENT information. (Project TALENT was a 1960 national survey of high school students.) Chapter titles include: (1) Interview Development, discussing interview forms and the respondent's booklet; (2) Sample Selection and Characteristics, examining the participants and how they were selected and contacted; (3) Data Collection, presenting field data collection procedures; (4) Data Analysis, discussing procedures used for various data; (5) Results, examining the characteristics of the male participants; and (6) Results for a Small Sample of WACs, examining the characteristics of female participants. The text is supplemented by 68 tables. A bibliography, table of contents for the interview forms and respondent's booklet, personnel involved, and a listing of the tables are appended. (LH)
