Veterans

November 29, 2012

According to the 2010 National Survey of Veterans:

Slightly more than 41 percent of Veterans indicated that their military experience applied “A lot” or “Some” to their most recent civilian job. A similar percent reported that they were “Very well” or “Well” prepared to enter the civilian job market when they separated from the military.

Regarding application of military experience to civilian jobs, the most recent cohort (those serving September 2001 or later) reported higher levels of application than the average Veteran: 60.6 percent of those serving after September 2001 indicated that their military experience applied “A lot” or “Some” to their most recent civilian job (compared with 41.1 percent for Veterans overall).

About 31 percent of Veterans “Strongly agreed” or “Agreed” that their chain of command was supportive when they began transition processing. This level of agreement was highest among those serving September 2001 or later; 43.5 percent “Strongly agreed” or “Agreed” that their chain of command was supportive when they began transition processing.

The 2010 National Survey of Veterans is the sixth in a series of comprehensive nationwide surveys designed to help the Department of Veterans Affairs plan its future programs and services for Veterans.
While past NSV’s have been conducted under the general authorization of U.S. Code Title 38, Section 527 which requires the VA Secretary to gather data for the purposes of planning and evaluating VA programs, the 2010 NSV also included the requirement, at the direction of Public Law 108-454, Section 805, to assess beneficiary awareness of VA benefits and services. The Public Law also expanded the survey populations in the 2010 NSV to include in addition to Veterans, other beneficiary groups: Active Duty Service members; demobilized National Guard and Reserve members; Family members and Surviving spouses.
