Abstract : The study of Health Status of Military Women and Men in the Total Force will obtain comprehensive probability-based epidemiological data for women and men across all pay grades for active-duty Army, Air Force, and Guard/Reserve components. These data will be combined with comparable data from a Naval Health Research Center survey of active-duty Navy and Marine Corps personnel to form a comprehensive dataset for the Total Force. Principal study objectives are to (a) examine the health status of military women and men in six general areas: reproductive health, medical history and nutritional status, mental health, lifestyle factors, occupational/environmental risks and stressors, and use of health services; (b) examine the effects of military women's and men's physical health conditions or emotional problems on military work; (c) examine the impact of military service on the health status of military women and men; and (d) examine factors associated with health care utilization, satisfaction, and access to health services. This Annual Report discusses major activities of Year 1, including questionnaire development and pilot testing, sample design, and data collection planning. In addition, it notes research activities planned for Year 2.
