Abstract : The annual Navy-wide Personnel Survey (BPS) was designed to collect opinion data on a systematic basis and to provide timely information on issues of importance to policy makers. The annual sampling, representative of the entire Navy population, allows the identification and analysis of trends in opinions and attitudes toward plans, programs, and policies that materially affect the performance and morale of Navy personnel. The survey was also designed to accommodate the study of topics of compelling interest on a one-time basis. This technical note provides enlisted results of NPS 1995, the sixth administration of NPS. NPS questionnaires were mailed in November 1995 to a random sample of 17,000 enlisted personnel and officers with a projected rotation date of December 1995 or later. Personnel who received the 1994 survey were not eligible for inclusion in the sample. The sampling represented approximately 5 percent of the eligible enlisted population and 12 percent of the eligible officer population. The adjusted return rate was 46 percent The survey requested demographic information and measured military personnel attitudes and opinions in various areas, including detailing and the assignment process, quality of life programs, leadership training, organizational climate, and health issues.
