Description

VDISCHECK indicates whether respondents receive a monthly check for a military service-related disability from the Veterans' Administration, or a branch of the armed forces.

This variable is part of the Veterans Supplement

Comparability

In 1995, the Veterans Supplement respondent universe included veterans and active duty personnel. After 1995, only veterans were asked supplement questions. In 2003 and earlier samples, Veterans Supplement respondents were 18 and older; in 2005 and later, respondents to the supplement were 17 and older.

For 1995 and 1997, VDISCHECK was asked of all supplement respondents who reported having a service-related disability, or did not answer the question about having a service related disability (VDISABLE).

In 1999 and 2005 forward, only those who responded "Yes" to the service related disability question are in universe for VDISCHECK.

VDISCHECK did not appear in 2001 and 2003 supplements.
