Well, it seems that the non-liberal-leaning Heritage Foundation and the non-conservative-leaning National Priorities Project are both looking at military recruiting. Here are their dueling studies (and, perhaps, conclusions):
National Priorities Project.
Everyone is welcome to have fun reviewing them, as they appear to be based on the same data. Of course, are any conclusions drawn statistically significant? Even if so, do they support what the dueling press releases (Heritage Foundation, National Priorities Project 2005 data) claim?
We do have a question for the Heritage Foundation: If so many rich or "wealthier" Americans, however defined, are lining up to enlist, why hasn't the national media, including Fox News and the Washington Times, introduced us to at least a couple of them?
