In 1993, the U.S. Army Research Institute for the Behavioral and Social Sciences (ARI) published a 61-page review of Army family research entitled What We Know About Army Families. This report summarized research findings from approximately 70 studies on American military families and the implications of that research for Army policymakers, program managers, unit leaders, and supervisors. The goal of What We Know About Army Families was to disseminate research-based information and recommendations about Soldiers and their families throughout the Army community to help strengthen retention, readiness, and family adaptation to Army life. The report was written in a nontechnical fashion--free of scientific and Army jargon--to be of maximum value to readers with diverse backgrounds who shared a common interest in and commitment to the support of soldiers and their families.

This document represents an update of the original report. Like its predecessor, What We Know About Army Families: 2007 Update provides a summary of findings from recent social science research conducted on, with, and about soldiers and their families. By design, the 2007 Update retains many of the original report's most valuable characteristics. (Author abstract modified)
