As a part of the work of the Rand-DOD Survey Group, a component of Rand’s Manpower, Mobilization and Readiness Program, the 1978 DOD Survey of Officers and Enlisted Personnel was administered in late January 1979 to a worldwide sample of over 93,000 officers and enlisted personnel in the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corps. This Note provides an overview of the survey design together with a description of the administrative procedures. Sections are included that describe the questionnaire development process, the contents of the questionnaires, the model developed for the survey administration, and the operational organization of the survey. The sample is outlined, together with aspects of sample selection. Copies of the questionnaires, administrative procedures, and all related letters and materials are appended.

This report is part of the RAND Corporation note series. The note was a product of the RAND Corporation from 1979 to 1993 that reported other outputs of sponsored research for general distribution.
