Characteristics of Active Component Non-Prior Service Accessions

Of the 8,652 individuals who applied for service in the USCG, a total of 3,270 actually accessed. This number represents a 38-percent accession-to-applicant ratio, the same percentage as in FY 2003 but down from 41 percent in 2002. The distribution of race/ethnicity by gender for FY 2004 Coast Guard and overall DoD Active Component NPS accessions is shown in Table 7.1. Eighty-two percent of USCG NPS accessions were male (Appendix Table E-6). Among men, 79 percent were White, 9 percent Black, 2 percent American Indian/Alaskan Native, 2 percent Asian, 1 percent Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander and 1 percent of individuals were of two or more races. Seventeen percent of male Coast Guard accessions identified themselves as Hispanic. Among female USCG accessions, 81 percent were White and 10 percent were Black. The percentages of all other racial categories among women were similar to those among men, except for American Indian/Alaskan Native, which comprised less than 1 percent of women. Twelve percent of female accessions identified themselves as Hispanic. Overall, USCG accessions were more likely to be White and male than accessions in DoD.
