In 2007, Director Military Personnel Operational Research and Analysis (DMPORA), in partnership with Director Defence Ethics Programme (DDEP), administered the third iteration of the Department of National Defence Ethics Questionnaire (DNDEQ). While a technical note outlining summaries of the findings for specific audiences has been published separately, this document is intended as a complete record of the research and data analysis for the research audience, and for archival purposes for Director Defence Ethics Programme. The survey was administered to 2825 CF Regular Force Members and 1475 DND civilian employees with response rates of 52.6% and 50.0%, respectively. Findings of the survey show that respondents in 2007 reported higher scores across all indicators of organizational ethical climate than did respondents of the 2003 survey. Additionally, findings from the 2007 survey on approaches to ethics for ethical decision-making are consistent with findings from the 2003 survey. Implications of the findings for the organization are discussed, as are methodological recommendations for future survey administrations.
