Drug Abuse and Its Prevention in the Military Services
Entropy Limited, under subcontract from Arthur D. Little, Inc. (ADL), designed a survey, entered the responses and performed the analysis of drug abuse in U.S. military services (Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps) around the globe. Each of 20,000 servicemen filled out a 60-page survey covering incidence, prevalence and patterns of drug abuse, detection of drug abuse problems; and education, treatment and rehabilitation. As a sub-contractor to ADL, EL provided the data management and analysis services for the project.
Considering the number of people surveyed and the amount of information obtained from each respondent, this was one of the largest surveys ever conducted for the U.S. Department of Defense and the U.S. Surgeon General's Office.
