Abstract : The Human Resource Strategic Assessment Program (HRSAP), located at Defense Manpower Data Center (DMDC), consists of both Web-based and paper-and-pen surveys to support the personnel needs of the Under Secretary of Defense for Personnel and Readiness. These surveys assess the attitudes and opinions of the entire Department of Defense (DOD) community active, reserve, civilian employees, and family members on a wide range of personnel issues. The Web-based survey program, known as the Status of Forces Surveys (SOFS), provides timely data on active, reserve, and civilian members. There are nine SOFS Web surveys planned for each year, with three cross-sectional samples of each population: active-duty members, reserve component members, and DoD civilian employees. The paper-and-pen surveys are used to obtain data on sensitive topics (e.g., sexual harassment) and from populations with limited Internet access (e.g., spouses of active-duty and Reserve members).
