VDISUNEMCUR indicates whether respondents currently have a military service-related disability that prevents them from getting or holding a job.
This variable is part of the Veterans Supplement
In 1995, the Veterans Supplement respondent universe included veterans and active duty personnel. In all other years, 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, VDISUNEMCUR was asked of all supplement respondents who reported having a service-related disability, were unable or unwilling to answer, or were asked but did not respond to the question about having a service related disability (VDISABLE).
In all other years, only those who responded "Yes" to the service related disability question are in universe for VDISUNEMCUR.
Beginning in 2021, the source question for VDISUNEMCUR specifically refers to jobs that "met long term career goals."
