For most of their history in the U.S. military services, women have faced stringent limits on where they could serve, what they could do, and what units they could join. This has changed over the last decade. But has opening new skills and units to women been enough? Do barriers remain that bar women even from some formally open occupations? The authors broadly assessed female representation in newly open occupations, then examined ten selected occupations in detail. This volume supplies supporting data for the analysis presented in the companion volume, MR-1380-OSD.
