A SERVICE-WIDE SURVEY OF ATTITUDES AND BEHAVIOR OF NAVAL PERSONNEL CONCERNING ALCOHOL AND PROBLEM DRINKING

Information on alcohol abuse problems and attitudes in the U.S. Navy is provided in this report of a service-wide mail survey conducted at the request of the Bureau of Naval Personnel. The survey sample consisted of a total of 9,508 persons on active duty in the Navy, including representative samples of male and female officrs and male and female enlisted personnel, their attitudes concerning alcohol use, and their opinions on the scope of the problem of drinking in the Navy and on how the Navy might cope with alcohol misuse. The survey was modeled after recent nationwide civilian surveys, thus providing a basis for comparisons between civilian and naval personnel. Appendices include details of sampling and data collection procedures, procedures for scoring drinking problems, questionnaires and forms used in the survey, and Navy regulations and guides concerning alcohol abuse and alcoholism. /Author/
