Abstract:

The study of Health Status of Military Women and Men in the Total Force will obtain comprehensive probability-based epidemiological data for women and men across all pay grades for active-duty Army, Air Force, and GuardReserve components. These data will be combined when possible with comparable data from a Naval Health Research Center survey of active-duty Navy and Marine Corps personnel to form a comprehensive dataset for the Total Force. The second year of the project has been devoted to finalizing the questionnaire, and making necessary preparations to begin the field work. The latter has consisted of obtaining military letters of support, meeting with the studys advisory group, selecting the study sample, planning the data collection methodology, and beginning data collection. Other activities, such as preparing publicity for the survey, have also taken place. In addition to discussion of the past years activities, this report also notes research plans for Year 3.
