The Volunteers Speak--Again: The Second Annual Survey of Peace Corps Volunteers.
Costanzo, Richard; Williams, Frederick B.
Questionnaires were sent to all active Peace Corps volunteers between July and September 1976. Completed questionnaires were returned by 62% of the volunteers who were in the field at the time of the survey. Analyses were conducted to provide basic descriptive information about volunteers, information on differences between groups or types of volunteers, and an examination of a few special issues. Comparisons were made between the results of the 1975 and 1976 surveys. Some of the results are: (1) 67% and 69% of the respondents to the 1975 and 1976 surveys, respectively, reported that their jobs were useful to the development of the host country; (2) 83% and 84% of the respondents reported that they were positive in their feelings toward the host country people; and (3) the respondents to the 1975 and 1976 surveys had mean scores of 495 and 500 on the volunteer Psychological Well-Being Index.
