Abstract:

The 2004 Marine Corps Climate Surveys MCCS measure active duty and reserve members experiences regarding organizational climate issues, discrimination, and sexual harassment. In June-July 2004, the MCCS Surveys were administered to a random sample of Marine Corps personnel 10,951 active duty, 8,962 reservists stratified by racialethnic group White, Black, Hispanic, AsianOther and gender within enlisted and officer populations. The response rates were 26 for active duty and 25 for reserves. Post-stratification weighting procedures were employed to ensure the respondents data accurately reflected the racialethnic and gender composition of the entire Marine Corps. The first section of the MCCS contained groups of items related to 11 organizational climate areas. The climate modules were followed by items assessing racialethnic, gender and religious discrimination. The final section of the surveys focused on sexual harassment issues. There were also number of questions on perceptions of SH climate. The overall results of the MCCS Surveys were positive. Clear and dramatic reductions have been made in the rates of both racialethnic discrimination and sexual harassment particularly among active-duty Marines.
