Abstract : At the request of the Under Secretary of Defense for Personnel and Readiness, the Defense Manpower Data Center (DMDC) conducted the first Joint-Service survey to assess active-duty service members' perceptions of fair treatment and equal opportunity (EO). After an extensive survey development process, the 16-page Equal Opportunity Survey (EOS) was administered from September 1996 through Febmary 1997. It was fielded to a nonproportional stratified random sample of 76,754 Service members in the Department of Defense (DoD) and Coast Guard. The response rate was 53%, which is typical for large-scale surveys of DoD military personnel. This codebook documents survey development, sample constmction and allocation, survey-administration procedures, and datasets that resulted from the survey.
