- Figures, in both tables, have been rounded to the nearest 10 in line with disclosure control policy.
- Figures ending in 5 are rounded to the nearest 20 to avoid bias, 5 or fewer is represented by ~, and 0 is represented by ¬.
- Figures in Table 2 consist of Officer and Other Rank applications only.
- EOI are sourced from multiple channels, with a majority through social media, meaning no measure of genuine intent can be assumed from the figures above as opposed to a ‘walk in’ to a military careers office.
