Title:
   Health and Insurance Status, Health Care Use, and Expenditures for Male Veterans, 2008: Estimates for the U.S. Civilian Noninstitutionalized Population
Product type:
   Statistical Brief 370
MEPS component:
   Household Component
Publication date:
   May 25, 2012
Description:
   In 2008, there were 21.5 million veterans in the U.S. civilian noninstitutionalized population, of which 20.2 million were men, accounting for 18.1 percent of the adult male population. This Statistical Brief compares the health status, use of health care services, insurance status, and health care expenditures for veterans to that for non-veterans in 2008. Because these measures vary greatly with age and the average age is substantially higher for veterans than non-veterans, estimates are shown separately for elderly and non-elderly men, and age-adjusted estimates are presented for non-veterans alongside the unadjusted estimates.
