This study examined the Quality of Life QOL of a randomly selected sample of military personnel assigned to Bergstrom AFB, TX and Lowry AFB, CO. A survey instrument was developed for this purpose. This study was designed to determine how different groupings of Air Force military personnel who were assigned to two bases which were located in two different Standard Metropolitan Statistical Areas SMSA perceived their QOL and to compare these perceptions to the QOL ratings produced by a model developed by Dr. Ben-Chieh Liu of the Mid- West Research Institute. Statistical analysis involved the use of factor analysis and standard frequency and crosstabs computer analysis products. The results of the study indicated that Dr. Lius model was valid for these two SMSAs.
