This report showed that the army visited 40% of state secondary schools in London over an 8-month period (and quite a few primary schools as well). It also showed that recruiters visited the poorest fifth of schools most often (51% of these were visited).

This was the first statistical evidence to indicate socioeconomic targeting by army recruiters and the first time I worked with Anna Goodman at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine to produce a statistical report.

The report is available here. (If the link doesn’t work, have a look on the ForcesWatch site.)
