Abstract:

The 2012 ADSS continues a line of research on active duty spouses begun with the 1985 DoD Surveys of Officer and Enlisted Personnel and Military Spouses. In 1992, 1999, 2006, and 2008, DMDC conducted subsequent Joint Service surveys of active duty spouses. The target population for the 2012 ADSS consisted of spouses of active duty members of the Army, Navy, Marine Corps, and Air Force, excluding National Guard and Reserve members, who 1 have at least six months of service at the time the survey is first fielded and 2 are below flag rank. Topics covered in the survey include education, employment, Permanent Change of Station PCS moves, health and well-being, use of and satisfaction with on-base and off-base child care, enrollment in the Exceptional Family Member Program, feelings about military life, spouse deployments, reunion and reintegration support, effects of spouse deployments on children, and financial well-being.
