Abstract:

The 2006 Navy Quality of Life QOL Survey focused on QOL issues and concerns among active duty Navy personnel. It was designed to be action oriented so that the Navy could address areas of concern to personnal. A stratified random sample was drawn 5,317 surveys were completed and responses were weighted to the population. A number of positive results were obtained. For example, enlisted personnel reported that overall satisfaction with shipboard life improved from 2002. And personnel, as a group, believed that standard of livingincome had also improved. An area of concern was the finding that only half of enlisted believed they were well prepared if asked to deploy in support of the Global War on Terrorism. An additional concern was the finding that personnel were apprehensive about the impact of future policy changes on their jobs and careers. to address that concern, it is recommended that the Navy develop more effective communication strategies.
