Post 9-11 Veterans: Education, Civilian Credentials and Earnings

With approximately 20 million military veterans in the U.S. population, and with tens of thousands more leaving the military each year, it is important to understand who they are and how well they are doing in the civilian workforce.

We were particularly curious about veterans who served after September 11th, 2001 (“Post-9/11 veterans”). Many have exited military service and joined the civilian labor force. Most are younger than 55. This group is more racially diverse (23 percent are non-white) and has a higher percentage of women (18 percent are women) than previous cohorts of service members.

The Center for Regional Economic Competitiveness team compared this group of veterans to the non-veteran population (the rest of the labor force). We found that Post-9/11 veterans:
• Are More Educated
• Obtain more professional credentials
• Especially female veterans
• Earn more with a certification or license.
