SAMAS Code Book Now Available
May 21th 2014
The purpose of the SAMAS Code Book is to provide a single quick reference for each of data elements contained in the SAMAS file. It is not intended to be the authority, but merely a tool to help understand the multitude of codes used in the Structure and Manpower Allocation System database.

This document will be updated (at a minimum) after every SAMAS force lock. However, if major changes occur in any of the data fields an incremental update will be made. To ensure you have the most current version, please check the “As of” on the front cover. Copies of this document are available here.
