Abstract : NSS 72-1 is the first survey in the Navy Sample Survey Series. The Navy Sample Surveys are conducted on a tri annual basis to ascertain information concerning the attitudes and opinions of Navy officers and enlisted personnel. The information is gathered for use by Navy managers in the evaluation of personnel plans and programs and in the formulation of Navy policy. During the second week of March 1972, questionnaires were mailed directly to 2,938 officers and 3,210 enlisted personnel. Responses were received from 80% of the officers and 75% of the enlisted persons. Topic areas included in NSS 72-1 were: information sources, duty assignments, the Navy Sponsor program, human relations, perception of personal abilities, warrant officer uniforms and background characteristics.
