Abstract:

This paper discusses the degree to which satisfaction and dissatisfaction with military life represent directionally opposite aspects of the same basic phenomenon. The analysis approach is to estimate an unordered model of survey responses regarding satisfaction with military life from Marine respondents to the 1985 DOD Member Survey. These estimates can be used to test whether satisfaction and dissatisfaction are opposites with respect to a particular set of variables. Keywords Estimates, Job satisfaction, Marine corps personnel, Probability distribution functions, Statistical analysis, Surveys.
