Methodology

METHODOLOGY

  • PROJECT SCOPE

    • 92 sites were surveyed in 2005

      - Northeast(21 sites)- Europe(20 sites)

      - Northwest(10 sites)- Korea(9 sites)

      - Southeast(13 sites)- Pacific(5 sites)

      - Southwest(14 sites)

    • 249,555 surveys were distributed throughout the Army to four patron groups:

      • Active Duty Soldiers

      • Spouses of Active Duty Soldiers (CONUS only)

      • DA Civilians

      • Retirees (CONUS only)

    • 1,596 surveys were distributed at 279th BSB - Bamberg

  • SURVEY ADMINISTRATION

    • Designed to collect information on installation MWR programs and facilities as well as the leisure activities of your potential market

    • 65 multiple choice questions; 7 questions were tailored to your specific installation issues


Methodology1

METHODOLOGY

  • SURVEY ADMINISTRATION (Continued)

    • Active Duty and DA Civilian surveys distributed by installation POCs

    • Spouses of Active Duty and Retiree surveys direct mailed to home addresses (CONUS only)

    • Web survey option offered for the first time to all respondents


Methodology2

METHODOLOGY

  • SURVEY SAMPLE

    • Four population segments

      - Active Duty - Civilian Employees

      - Spouses of Active Duty (CONUS only)- Retirees (CONUS only)

    • Response Rates and Confidence Intervals for each patron group and overall sample

_____________________________________________________

* Response rate is calculated by dividing the number of surveys returned by the number of surveys distributed. It should be noted that low response rates (i.e., less than 20%) increase the chance that one or more subgroups (e.g., for active duty patron group, E1-E4 is a subgroup) may be over- or under-represented. Any patron groups with fewer than 15 survey respondents do not have their data reported to protect privacy and ensure representativeness.

**A confidence interval for a sample mean tells us the range in which we are likely to find the true population mean: Assume 300 surveys were returned for an active duty patron group of 1,350. 52% responded that they used the gym in the last year. The 95% confidence interval for this case would be 5%. Thus there is a 95% chance that the TOTAL number of active duty at this installation who used the gym last year is between 47% and 57%. We can be 95% confident that between 634 and 770 active duty used the gym last year.
