This report documents analysis conducted across a variety of public nationally representative datasets to generate baseline estimates related to veterans’ demographics, mental health, and labor market outcomes. The authors summarize relevant estimates and trends to support the work of policymakers and researchers focused on veteran-related issues and to inform public audiences interested in the welfare of the U.S. veteran population.
The authors first explore trends and estimates focused on the demographics of the veteran population, drawing primarily from the American Community Survey. They next present estimates focused on the mental and behavioral health of veterans, drawing primarily from the National Survey on Drug Use and Health. Finally, the authors explore trends and estimates focused on veterans’ participation in the labor market, drawing primarily from the Current Population Survey’s Annual Social and Economic Supplement.
