Survey data used in this study were collected by GFK Custom Research France in November of 2008 and consist of 1500 randomly selected respondents from a stratified sample of the target population (French male citizens born in 1978 and 1979), 750 in each age cohort with a response rate of 80 %. the survey’s target population was restricted to French male citizens born within 1 year of either side of the January 1, 1979 cutoff. The sampling frame was taken from an address file of men born in the target years and was stratified regionally and on socio-demographic criteria such as income, number of children, and education. The survey instrument was presented as a study about civic engagement and the high response rate is attributed to the respondents’ general interest in the topic. National service participants in the sample could have served any time between 1996 and 2001, which means the survey instrument would have been implemented between 12 and 7 years after service participation.
