Abstract : The study involved the development of a new system for administration of the annual family housing survey, and an evaluation of the test of the new system. The Naval Facilities Engineering Command is responsible for coordinating an annual survey of family housing which is used to determine military family housing requirements. The present survey system involves use of a questionnaire which must be keypunched and administration of these questionnaires by monitors during group sessions. This system is both time-consuming and costly. The new system involves use of a questionnaire which is suitable for optical scanning and administration of these questionnaires through the mail. The new survey system was tested in conjunction with the CY 71 operational family housing survey at six different locations. The results of the test showed that, while use of the new system is feasible, further improvements first must be made in the questionnaire itself and in the mailing procedures. (Author)
