Abstract:

This report describes the 1982 Worldwide Survey of alcohol and nonmedical drug use in the military. The data were obtained through a survey that was administered to a representative sample of all active duty military personnel below pay grade 07. A two-stage sampling design was used that resulted in the selection of 58 first stage units installations and 26,964 sample individuals. The first stage sampling frame was stratified by Service Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force within four broadly stratified geographic regions of the world. A total of fifteen first stage strata were defined one for each Service in each region except for Marines in Europe which were sampled in conjunction with the Navy in Europe. Second stage sampling units were lines on the personnel rosters of the organizational units selected at the first stage of sampling. The second stage frame was stratified into five pay grade groups E1-E5s, E6-E9s, W1-W4s,, 01-03s, and 04-06s within each first stage unit, except for the Air Force which does not have warrant officer grades.
