Abstract:

An extensive research project was initiated in 1982 which investigated the career development and decision-making processes of three communities of naval officers. An officer career questionnaire was sent to a sub-sample N 20,999 of the larger population of aviation, surface warfare, and general unrestricted line officerN23,769. These questionnaires were administered during 1982 and then readministered during 1986-1987. As a result of this study, two databases were constructed 1 a cross-sectional database that includes data for all individuals who completed a survey in FY86-FY87N12, 319, and 2 a longitudinal database that includes data for all individuals who completed a questionnaire in FY82 N9,109 and in FY86-FY87 N5,633. The present document outlines the column locations for each variable in the cross- sectional database. Those that wish to access the database to conduct additional analyses, link it to or combine it with other databases, enlarge the database for the conduct of trend analyses, etc., will find this data dictionary an essential aid.
