To collect data on men's attitudes toward army medical and dental treatment and attention received in army hospitals.
This study contains two samples:
a. 5,114 white enlisted men sampled by branch from 3 AAF installations and 12 AGF and ASF installations. These men, for the most part, were selected randomly from Form 20 cards. At some camps, every nth man was called within chosen companies
b. 414 white enlisted men who had been hospitalized. These men were called from discharge rosters
There are two forms of the questionnaire:
- administered to men who have received medical or dental care in the army
- administered to men who have been hospitalized in army hospitals.
Additional questions related to Red Cross workers and recreational facilities are included in the questionnaire on Hospital Attention.
