The Air Force Community Assessment Survey for 2013 will be released in March. The theme for this year’s survey is “A Strong Community Depends On You.”

The Community Assessment is the only Air Force-wide survey that gathers information tailored for each and every Air Force installation. Results from the Community Assessment Survey will inform installation community actions and improvements of programs and services that support military families.

“Base leadership is sensitive to the fact that this year’s survey comes at a time of increased anxiety and uncertainty surrounding the impact of budget cuts on our community and workforce. We would expect to see those concerns reflected in survey responses,” said Col. Daniel Daetz, 412th Test Wing vice commander.

Active Duty, Reservists, Guardsmen, and Civilian employees can expect e-mail notifications within the coming weeks. Spouses will be sent an invitation postcard. Both the e-mails and postcards will include a link to the online survey and all responses will be kept completely anonymous and confidential.

This survey is completely anonymous. The Air Force has contracted the research company, Ipsos, to conduct this survey. According to Ipsos, they have designed this survey so that no one – the Air Force, the government, nor Ipsos – can link any aspect of your responses to your personal identifiable information.

Past surveys have resulted in new and/or improved programs to support the entire Air Force community.
Previous surveys have resulted in new parks, job opportunities for spouses, increased support networks like the Adopted Family Program, INTRO program, Singles Network Group and new classes.

“While this survey is not the only avenue for the Edwards community to voice feedback, it will be carefully considered as we revise our Community Action Plan later in the year,” added Daetz. “We were successful in lobbying for an extension of the survey period, which should give greater flexibility for participation by those who are randomly selected.”

For assistance in taking the survey, please call Ipsos’ survey support helpline at 1-866-342-3357 or email them at afcasurvey@ipsosresearch.com.

Overcoming failures
