  1 Rates not shown where the base is less than 75,000. Small estimated levels are based on a small number of survey responses and, thus,
are subject to relatively large standard errors.
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.
  Veterans could have served anywhere in the world during these periods of service: Gulf War era II (September 2001-present), Gulf War era
I (August 1990-August 2001), Vietnam era (August 1964-April 1975), Korean War (July 1950-January 1955), World War II (December
1941-December 1946), and other service periods (all other time periods). Veterans are counted in only one period of service, their most
recent wartime period. Veterans who served in more than one wartime period are classified in the most recent one. Veterans who served in
both a wartime period and any other service period are classified in the wartime period. A service-connected disability is a health
condition or impairment caused or made worse by military service. The associated disability rating, which can range from 0 to 100 percent,
is determined from a rating schedule published in the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations, "Title 38." More information appears in the
Technical Note of this release. Dash represents or rounds to zero.
