NOTE: Veterans are men and women who served on active duty in the U.S. Armed Forces and were not on active duty at the time of the survey. Gulf War-era II veterans served on active duty anywhere in the world sometime since September 2001. Nonveterans never served on active duty in the U.S. Armed Forces. Beginning with data for January 2014, estimates for veterans incorporate updated weighting procedures. Dash indicates no data or data that do not meet publication criteria (values not shown where base is less than 35,000).
