Results from the 2020 armed forces continuous attitude survey (AFCAS) are now available.
This statistical release provides results from the AFCAS 2020, along with results from previous years.
Statistics from AFCAS are used by both internal Ministry of Defence (MOD) teams and external bodies to inform the development of policy and measure the
impact of decisions affecting personnel, including major programmes such as the Armed Forces Covenant.
Satisfaction with Service life remains unchanged this year at 45%
A third of personnel are now satisfied with the opportunity to work flexibly
Satisfaction with pay has increased for a second year in a row, to 39%
Interesting to see that only ''three in ten personnel are satisfied with their pension benefits, unchanged since 2018 but still well below peak satisfaction in 2007'
