Use of DoD Roster of Veterans Who Have Left Active
Because VA health data are not
representative of the Veterans who have not accessed VA health care, epidemiological studies are required to
answer specific questions about the health of
all OEF/OIF/OND Veterans.
based on this updated roster are not directly comparable to prior reports because the denominator (number
of OEF/OIF/OND Veterans eligible for VA health care) and numerator (number of Veterans
enrolling for VA
health care) change with each update.
This report presents data from VAs
health care facilities and does not include Vet Center data or DoD health care data.
These health care data are cumulative totals since FY 2002 and do not represent data
from any single year.
provided in this report should not be manipulated to provide new data without first checking on the
validity of the manipulations with VAs Office of Public Health.
Cumulative from 1st
Quarter FY 2002 through 3rd Quarter FY 2011
