Participants in this study consisted of 257 active-duty military members from all five branches of service. There were 98 females and 159 males (Figure 2). Of the 257 participants, there were 99 officers, and 158 enlisted personnel (Figure 3). The sample includes responses from 146 Air Force members, 63 sailors, 20 Marines, 19 Coast Guardsmen, and nine soldiers (Figure 1). There were 171 stateside participants, 70 overseas participants, and 16 participants were forward deployed (Figure 4).
The first five questions of the survey were demographic information. Question 6 was a yes/no question of Internet use. Questions 7 through 10 solicited the frequency of mediums with five answer choices: daily/weekly/monthly/never/don't have. The final three questions ranked the reliance on newspaper/radio/television/Internet mediums, for internal military information.
