Abstract:

This report explores the applicability of neighborhood studies theory and social indicators research to our understanding of the quality of life in and around military bases. Preliminary research suggests that a neighborhood studies assessment of military installations and their environs could contribute to military decisionmaking in such areas as programming and distribution of resources across base support services. This exploratory analysis also highlights gaps in neighborhood studies methodology that need to be addressed in future research. Finally, we outline how a more in-depth neighborhood studies analysis of military installations could be conducted. This report results from the RAND Corporations continuing program of self-initiated independent research. Support for this program is provided, in part, by donors and by the independent research and development provisions of RANDs contracts for the operation of its U.S. Department of Defense federally funded research and development centers.
