Abstract:

The 2002 Navy Quality of Life QOL Survey was conducted primarily to determine Sailors satisfaction with 15 professional and personal life domains, one of which was Shipboard Life. A Navy-wide random, stratified sample was drawn using an optimized sample allocation procedure. Data were weighted, using non-response and weighting class adjustments, to ensure that results would accurately generalize to the Navy population. Results are presented for shipboard life overall and specific and grouped aspects of shipboard life. Of the 15 domains, the Shipboard Life domain correlated the highest with overall satisfaction with military life and was perceived by many first-term enlisted and first-obligation officers as negatively impacting their desire to remain in the Navy. A research program focusing on shipboard habitability is proposed and described.
