The Army launched a new survey which allows Soldiers to voice their concerns directly and anonymously to Army leadership.  DACES is a customized survey, with questions tailored to the individual Soldier based on their responses to previous questions.  The Army will use the results of DACES to inform retention efforts and help the Army create retention incentives and improve quality of life programs in order to retain talent.

DACES First Annual Report

During its first year (through 31 March 2021), over 50,000 Active Duty SMs completed the voluntary DACES survey. The analyses in this report are based on a subset of 37,812 Active Duty SMs who met the following inclusion criteria: 1) completed a DACES survey during the given year; 2) consented to their responses being used for research purposes; and 3) passed a series of additional data checks. The First Annual Report describes the inception of the DACES survey, provides an overview of the instrument, highlights key findings and capabilities from the first year of data collection, and projects evolutionary changes for the next year of DACES data collection.
