Abstract:

The Navy Personnel Survey NPS 1990 was commissioned by the Chief of Naval Personnel to collect data on the opinions and perceptions that enlisted and officer personnel had of Navy life. The survey, which will be administered annually, was designed to provide policy makers with personnel feedback on a variety of key issues, such as rotation and permanent change-of-station moves, pay and benefits, and quality-of-life programs. In addition to multiple-choice items, NPS 1990 included sections that permitted respondents to submit written comments on each of the areas covered by the survey. This report presents and interprets examples of comments to help promote empathy with and understanding of the individual officer and enlisted person that cannot be provided by statistics alone.
