Abstract : This report provides detailed information about the number and characteristics of members of the Special Operations Forces (SOF) community who participated in the 2009 SOF Language and Culture Needs Assessment (LCNA) project, providing readers with detailed information about the sample of focus group and survey participants. Although the main purpose of this report is descriptive, the reader can use the information provided, such as the response rates and characteristics of the respondents, to judge the representativeness of the findings in relationship to the SOF community or to specific groups within the SOF community. By including the majority of the participation information in this report, redundancy is eliminated from all the issue reports associated with this project, allowing the focus to be on aspects of participation unique to the specific issue report.
