This report summarizes findings from the 1996 Survey on officer Careers (SOC). SOC is a continuation of the Longitudinal Research on Officer Careers (LROC) survey research program. The LROC program called for similar surveys to be mailed to a longitudinal sample of company grade officers each year over a number of years. Surveys were administered in 1988, 1989,1990, and 1992. The SOC was first administered in May of 1996. Samples for SOC included all officers who had responded to any of the LROC surveys and who were still on active duty, as well as a new randomly-drawn cross-sectional sample of officers at all ranks. This report summarizes findings for the new 1996 cross-sectional sample of officers. The SOC continues to provide data on the values, altitudes, family situations, and career experiences of Army officers who are serving in Army Competitive Category branches. SOC results will be used to test models of work, career, family, and personal factors that influence officers' career decisions. The SOC also provides a rich longitudinal database for examining the Army experience from a long-term perspective.
