Abstract

1. Nine-hundred and sixty-eight cases admitted to an army neurosis center are analyzed according to certain sociological factors. The age distribution of cases is given.2. Normal homes produce a significantly smaller proportion of military delinquents than broken homes.3. A rough gradation of financial status of the parental home of patient-soldiers is presented. While there is an apparent tendency for the homes with inadequate finances to produce a larger proportion of military delinquents than do homes with more adequate financial status, this is statistically not significant.4. Urban-rural background is given for the 968 patients. Patients with urban background are somewhat more likely to be military delinquents than those from rural background.5. The marital status by three year age groups is presented. Military delinquency is not significantly related to marital status in this group of patients.6. Men who have held but one job before entering the service are less likely to become military delinquents than men who have badly disorganized work histories.
