Having military neighbors was the least frequently cited reason for living on-base. Furthermore, members believe that their families are as well supported off-base as they are on-base. In other words, without the economic benefit, most military members see no compelling reason to live on-base. In contrast, many members believe that military housing contributes to the well-being of families in general and the military community. The reported cost of housing military families on-base is high, and this cost far outstrips the allowance that members are offered for living off-base.
Families at Air Force bases appear to prefer military housing to civilian rental housing, whereas families at Navy bases seems to prefer renting. Families at Army and Marine bases are in the middle. 3 is discussed in more detail in Chapter Four. Page 23 under a range of local conditions. With only about three bases per service in the sample, these results should not be generalized to service-wide conclusions. Despite these base differences in preferences, we did not find significant differences across bases (or services) in families' attitudes towards their housing and their neighborhoods.
Base officials at our 12 survey bases were instrumental in assisting with the distribution and collection of the surveys as well as providing important information about base-specific problems and conditions. Among RAND colleagues, we are grateful to Susan Everingham, Gina Franco, Gretchen Guess, Lee Mizell, Marian Oshiro, and Mark Spranca for their assistance with focus groups, construction of the survey questionnaire, and data collection. We are also thankful to the RAND Survey Group for their prompt and efficient administration of the housing survey.
