This thesis analyses the perferences of active duty Coast Guard personnel concerning the following areas of compensation - housing, government messing facilities, the commissaryexchange system, and medical care. Attitudes concerning a possible conversion from the present pay system to a salary system or a cafeteria-style compensation plan are also obtained. Data was provided by two survey documents. The first survey was administered service-wide in January 1980 to ascertain the housing situation. The second survey, which addressed the other areas of compensation under consideration, was distributed to a sample of 800 active duty personnel selected at random from the entire service. Results indicate a widespread desire for changes in the services compensation system. As a whole, respondents desire more flexibility in the pay system to accommodate individual preferences for compensation in each area that was analyzed. Author
