This chapter contains demographic data on the Reserve and Guard population, including the DoD Reserve and Guard components as well as the DHS Coast Guard Reserve. The first section presents information on Ready Reserve personnel. The Ready Reserve comprises the Selected Reserve, the Individual Ready Reserve, and the Inactive National Guard. Because Selected Reserve members train throughout the year and participate annually in Active Duty training exercises, the rest of the sections in this chapter focus on the Selected Reserve. The specific characteristics of the Selected Reserve components addressed in this chapter include gender, race/ethnicity, geographic location, age, education level, marital status, and retirements and losses.
