Abstract : This report provides a description of the officers and enlisted personnel in the United States Armed Forces. The data for this description are drawn from the 1978/1979 DoD Survey of Officers and Enlisted Personnel, jointly designed and administered by The Rand Corporation and the Department of Defense. This work should contribute to defense manpower policy analyses and evaluation by providing demographic, economic, behavioral, and attitudinal information about the men and women on active duty not available as part of the routinely collected administrative data; by identifying problematic areas of military life which may be amenable to ameliorative action; and by isolating specific areas for further policy analyses.
