This secondary analysis examined the outcomes of public–private partnerships for housing, specifically the Military Privatized Housing Initiative, from the perspective of Military Family Housing (MFH) residents. Pre- and postimplementation residential satisfaction were analyzed and found to be lower in residents of privatized MFH. Analysis of sociodemographic factors revealed several significant determinants of residential satisfaction. Significant determinants in the pre-implementation sample were income (paygrade), branch of service, ethnicity, and whether the member had children or dependents in his or her household. In the postimplementation sample, having children or dependents in the household was also a significant determinant of residential satisfaction.
