57 ASVAB-testing-data-2008 -2009-by-state

The Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) is the military's entrance exam that is given to prospective recruits to determine their aptitude for various military occupations. The four-hour test is also used by military recruiting services to gain valuable information on hundreds of thousands of high school students across the country every year, the vast majority of whom are under the age of 18. In many cases, students take the test without parental knowledge or consent. Unless the school that is used for the testing requests "Option 8" for reporting purposes, information from each test is given to local military recruiters to be able to conduct more effective sales pitches to our youth.

The data provided on this page details, by State or Territory, each school with the numbers of students that have been tested under each ASVAB option during the 2008-2009 school year.

Although it took a lot of interface with MEPCOM to get this batch of data and then it came in without city ID for the schools in the states. However, we have added preliminary Option selection data support (in bold blue) for each state and, in some cases where curiousity lead us to some minimal data reduction. What would also be useful is some additional work (such as we did for our home state of Oregon), to denote those schools that require the test be given to each student (anything in the "Mandatory" column), coupled with the less-than-Option 8 notations, again, such as we have done for Oregon.

It should be noted that, despite the miserable showing of 0% Option 8 for some states (examples: ME, AZ, MO, LA and SD, with all "territories" in the same category) , the '08-'09 over-all Option 8 participation was 8.6% of all students tested, while the '09-'10 participations edged up to 12.2%. Another item of note is that anywhere a JROTC is identified as being in a school, all ASVAB testing seems automatically to be "Option 1," reflecting the strong military leaning at that school.

Pew ReportsAs the U.S. marks the 10th anniversary of the longest period of sustained warfare in its history, the vast majority of veterans of the post-9/11 era are proud of their military service and say it has helped them mature as human beings. However most  have philosophical conflicts with the wars they are fighting.

Report has much statistical data with supporting charts.

The Real U.S. National Security BudgetWelcome to the world of the real U.S. national security budget.  Normally, in media accounts, you hear about the Pentagon budget and the war-fighting supplementary funds passed by Congress for our conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan.  That already gets you into a startling price range -- close to $700 billion for 2012 -- but that’s barely more than half of it.  If Americans were ever presented with the real bill for the total U.S. national security budget, it would actually add up to more than $1.2 trillion a year.
