Funding received for The Veteran Metrics Initiative

Posted: March 16, 2015

The Veteran Metrics Initiative: Linking Program Components to Post-Military Well-Being (“TVMI Study”) is a longitudinal study that will follow military personnel as they transition out of military service to identify their use of transition and reintegration programs and assess changes in their well-being over the next three years.

TVMI Study Aims are to: (1) document veteran well-being in four key domains (i.e., vocation, finances, mental and physical health, and social relationships) over the first three years of the transition from military to civilian life; (2) describe programs that are used by veterans as they reintegrate into civilian life and distill them into their components, then identify common components across programs; and (3) examine the link between common program components and veteran well-being, and between program components and veteran characteristics or subgroups.
