This report is based on secondary analysis of the 1992 Surveys of Officers and Enlisted Personnel and Their Spouses. The report provides a broad overview of the program evaluation data. It describes in detail which programs are used most frequently, which are used less, the level of importance respondents give the various MWR services, and the level of satisfaction with family programs. The analyses also examined whether program use and ratings of importance and satisfaction vary by such characteristics as Service, pay grade, custody of minor children, and spouse employment status. The report assesses whether the services and programs are meeting their stated objectives of improving military members and families well-being. MWR services are said to fulfill their stated objectives if a large proportion of members or spouses use the services and rate them as important and are satisfied with them. Results indicated that for both members and spouses, use of and satisfaction with the MWR programs and services are significant predictors of satisfaction with different aspects of military life.
