Demographic Profile of the Officer, Enlisted, and Warrant Officer Populations of the National Guard: September 2008 Snapshot [open pdf - 601KB]
"In this issue paper, we present a consistent demographic profile of the officer, enlisted, and warrant officer populations that form the two components of the National Guard: the Air National Guard and the Army National Guard. 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."
