Abstract : This report examines the patterns of community support program use among Army soldiers and their spouses. The data for the report are from a 1989 Army-wide survey of a probability sample of 11,035 soldiers in 528 active component Army units and 3,277 Army spouses. The report examines: The perceptions of program usefulness and the perceptions of Army policy impact on family members, the quality of Army family programs, and the helpfulness of Army community service personnel, and User demographic characteristics and indicators of potential program or service need for over 30 separate Army services. Overall, patterns of program use vary by soldier rank and, to some extent, geographical location. All soldiers and spouses, however, believe that the Army community support services are essential to the well-being of the Army community.
