The report summarizes the major results of a survey which idenfified how enlisted men view their barracks conditions, which conditions they would like to see changed, and how attitudes about barracks are affected by background demographic factors. The mens ratings on 145 conditions are presented, together with a ranking of how important it is to change each condition. Major differences in attitudes about barracks are shown to relate to number of persons per room and factors such as age, pay grade, and intent to re-enlist. Recommendations are made for using information from this study in improving present conditions in constructing new barracks, and in evaluating the effectiveness of improvements.
