Abstract : An extensive research project was initiated in 1981 which investigated the career development and decision-making processes of naval officers. An officer career questionnaire was sent to a sub-sample (N = 20,999) of the larger population (N = 23,769). These questionnaires were administered during 1982 and then readministered during 1986-1987. As a result of this study, two databases were constructed: (1) a cross-sectional database that includes data for all individuals who completed a survey in FY86-FY87 (N = 12,319), and (2) a longitudinal database that includes data for all individuals who completed a questionnaire in FY82 (N = 9,109) and in FY86-FY87 (N = 5,633). The documentation for the longitudinal database is provided in two separate volumes. The present documentation is the first of this two-part series and provides the data layout for all items included in the FY82 survey.
