After an extensive survey development process, the 16-page Equal Opportunity Survey EOS was administered from September 1996 through Febmary 1997. It was fielded to a nonproportional stratified random sample of 76,754 Service members in the Department of Defense DoD and Coast Guard. The response rate was 53, which is typical for large-scale surveys of DoD military personnel.
