Abstract : DMDC conducted the first Joint-Service, active-duty sexual harassment survey in 1988. In 1994-95, DMDC updated and re-administered the survey. This codebook and two others document survey-administration procedures and the datasets for the three 1995 surveys forms. Form A replicated the 1988 survey that produced the initial baseline data on sexual harassment in the active-duty Services. Form B differed from Form A in three major ways. It provided (a) an expanded list of 25 potential harassment behaviors; (b) an opportunity to report on experiences that occurred outside normal duty hours, not at work, and off the base, ship, or installation; and (c) updated measures of members' perceptions of complaint processing, reprisal, and training. Form C was created from parts of Forms A and B to assess the overlap of the incidence measures in the two Forms. A non-proportional stratified random sample of 91 006 personnel were selected: 30,756 for Form A, 50,394 for Form B, and 9,856 for Form C. Data collection was by mail starting 15 February 1995. Usable surveys were returned by 47,255 Service members for a weighted response rate of 54%. Responses were weighted up to population totals, adjusting for differential sampling and response rates in demographically homogeneous groups.
