Demographic Profiles of the Officer, Enlisted, and Warrant Officer Populations of the Reserve Components: September 2008 Snapshot [open pdf - 703KB]
"In this issue paper, we present consistent demographic profiles of the officer, enlisted, and warrant officer populations that form five of the Reserve components: the Air Force Reserve, the Army Reserve, the Coast Guard Reserve, the Marine Corps Reserve, and the Navy Reserve. We focus on Selective Reserve members who are not in the Active National Guard and Reserve. We divide the paper into three sections. The first examines the officer corps, separating the flag/general officers from officers in grades O-1 through O-6. In the second section, we consider the enlisted ranks, comparing those in ranks E-1 through E-6 with those in ranks E-7 through E-9. In the third section, we look at the warrant officer population, comparing it with the entire enlisted force. In all cases, data are displayed in charts and tables by gender and race/ethnicity categories, and they are reported as percentages and as raw counts to facilitate comparisons and illustrate differences in magnitude. Although the data presented here are in the form of 2008 snapshots, we also provide an appendix with yearly data starting in 2000."
