||Marital Status. Approximately 10 percent of FY 1998 Selected Reserve NPS
enlisted accessions were married (Table 5.5). The marriage rates of prior service recruits look markedly different, with 40 percent married. The FY 1998 prior service cohort, predominantly those leaving
active duty enlisted service who chose to affiliate with the Reserves, were less likely to be married than active duty enlisted members (53 percent). Also, prior service Reserve recruits were less likely to be
married than their civilian counterparts, 20- to 39-year-old civilians in the labor force (51 percent). Among FY 1998 prior service Reserve accessions, a somewhat larger proportion of males were married than
females, consistent with the trend in the 20- to 39-year-old civilian population. There were no marital status differences by gender for FY 1998 NPS Reserve accessions.
