A two-month survey of Army spouses has been launched by the RAND Corp. to look at challenges faced and where spouses believe the most help is available.

Participants are chosen at random, and will receive a postcard with a security code to take the 20-minute online survey. Survey invitations will be limited to spouses living in the U.S. who are at least 18 years old.

Army leaders hope the survey can help shape future community and family programs. It will look at spouses from different generations and those living at installations of various sizes. “Your input can help leaders understand how well Army spouse and family needs are being met and where resources may need to be realigned,” RAND says in statement.

RAND says the survey is sponsored by the Army deputy assistant chief of staff for installation management and is overseen by the Army Research Institute for the Behavioral and Social Sciences.

“The Today's Army Spouse Survey is the only Army survey that collects feedback directly from spouses of Soldiers about their needs and about the strengths and gaps in available services to meet their needs,” according to the RAND statement.

If you have not received a postcard, contact to see if you were selected for the survey and, if so, receive an access code.
