Results from supplementary questions added to the annual General Social Survey indicated that support for a peacetime military draft declined from 44 percent in 1982 to an all-time low of 24 percent in 1984. At the same time, 84 percent of the public would approve of a return to the draft in case of national emergency. Satisfaction with the All-Volunteer Force increased from 63 percent to 84 percent over the same period, and the proportion who assign favorable ratings to the quality of military personnel rose from 53 percent to 72 percent. Attitudes toward military spending declined from 31 percent to 19 percent, while opposition to further increase rose from 32 percent to 38 percent. Responses to nine other questions concerning public opinion revealed no significant change over the two-year period. Majorities continued to favor compulsory national service for youth and to approve the recruiting of women and minorities to the Armed Forces. About two-thirds of the public maintained the belief that the United States should take an active part in world affairs. Data on public opinion concerning military service as a moral obligation, the educational role of the Armed Forces, expectations of military futures are also provided
General Social Surveys, 1972-1994 : [Cumulative File] by James A Davis( )

7 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The General Social Surveys (GSS) are designed as part of a program of social indicator research, replicating questionnaire items and wording in order to facilitate time-trend studies. This collection is a cumulative dataset that merges 20 years of the General Social Surveys. In 1994, two major innovations were introduced to the GSS. First, the traditional core set of questions was substantially reduced to allow for the creation of mini-modules (small- to medium-sized supplements). The mini-modules permit greater flexibility to incorporate innovations and to include important items proposed by the social science community. Second, a new biennial, split-sample design was instituted. The sample consisted of two parallel subsamples of approximately 1,500 cases each. The two subsamples contained identical cores. The A sample also contained a standard topical module, the mini-modules, and an ISSP (International Social Survey Program) module on women, work, and the family. The B sample had a second topical module, mini-modules, and an ISSP module on the environment. In effect, the A sample can be viewed as representing a traditional GSS for 1994 and the B sample as representing a traditional GSS for 1995. Rather than being fielded separately in two different years, they were fielded together. In subsequent even-numbered years, the same design described for 1994 will be repeated. The topical modules for 1994 focused on the themes of family mobility and multiculturalism ... Cf.: http://webapp.icpsr.umich.edu/cocoon/ICPSR-STUDY/06492.xml
