Description

VDISABLE indicates whether the United States Veterans Administration has assigned the veteran a service-connected disability rating. VDISRATE gives the level of disability assigned. Service-connected disability ratings are used to determine monthly benefit amounts for disabled veterans. The rating system assigns a disability rating (in 10% increments) representing the "average detriment to earning capacity" attributable to the service-connected disability. More detailed information on disability definitions from the VA can be found here. More information about disability compensation from the VA can be found here.

(See the variable description for VETSTAT for more information on who is considered a veteran by the U.S. Census Bureau.)
