Abstract:

An extensive research project was initiated in 1981 which investigated the career development and decision-making processes of naval officers. An officer career questionnaire was sent to a sub-sample N 20,999 of the larger population N 23,769. 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-FY87 N 12,319, and 2 a longitudinal database that includes data for all individuals who completed a questionnaire in FY82 N 9,109 and in FY86-FY87 N 5,633. The documentation for the longitudinal database is provided in two separate volumes. The present documentation is the first of this two-part series and provides the data layout for all items included in the FY82 survey.
