To better understand and plan for the needs of a changing military force, the Defense Manpower Data Center DMDC conducted the 1992 Surveys of Officers and Enlisted Personnel and Their Spouses. The surveys were designed to provide information on issues that affect military personnel, particularly military families, and guide the development of future personnel policies. Information collected in the surveys included demographics, military background, deployments, retention and career intentions, dependents and child care issues, military compensation, benefits and programs, and family resources. This report provides a demographic profile of the members of the various Services by sex, age, minority status, education, and pay grade. Members were analyzed by their family type dual military, married with civilian spouse, single with children, etc. and the perceived impact that their Service had on marital and family status. This report provides a profile of active-duty members, and presents findings that can be used to improve family policies for todays military force.
