SELECTED RESERVE ENLISTED ACCESSIONS AND ENLISTED FORCE
Marital Status. Just under half of Selected Reserve members are married (Table 5.13). This proportion is lower than for the comparable civilian population (58 percent), and just under enlisted members in the Active Components (50 percent). The proportion of married female Selected Reserve members (35 percent) is much lower than the proportion of married female civilians (54 percent). This difference is in part explained by the younger age of women enlisted members compared to their civilian counterparts. Females are much more likely to be in dual-service marriages (21 percent) than are males (2 percent).
