Dec 31, 1979
Describes the 1978 survey administered to a worldwide sample of active force personnel in all four Services. The survey was conducted between January and June 1979. The survey was one of several interrelated collection efforts of the Rand-DOD Survey Group, a component of the Rand Manpower, Mobilization and Readiness Program. The first four sections of this Note describe the rationale of the survey, sample, and weighting procedures, and data-processing procedures, especially those with analytic implications. The codebook sections reproduce each question in the four questionnaires, together with every permissible response category. Variable-specific explanatory notes also appear. The files for this survey contain a total of 57,590 records: 21,565 for Form 1 (enlisted personnel), 16,773 for Form 2 (enlisted personnel), 9,632 for Form 3 (officers), and 9,570 for Form 4 (officers).
