← Fault Lines - Religion in the military

It seems that we require data comparing the religiosity of the military with that of the civilian population, as well as data on the socioeconomic background of recruits.

I could not find anything on religiosity, but did find something on demographics:

US military recruits are more likely to have a high school degree and generally match the US distribution of income, but rural areas and The South are overrepresented.
