This report evaluates the 2010 ACS Content Test to simplify the veteran identification question and generate more reliable and accurate estimates of veterans. The results of that testing will help determine the content to be incorporated into production ACS in 2013. Results from the 2006 ACS Content Test suggested that the complexity of the existing question may result in the undercounting of veterans. Because of this, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) proposed revisions to the categories, the wording and order of the categories, and the question instruction wording. The results of this analysis find that the estimate of veterans from the test version is comparable to the estimate from the control version. The VA recommends the adoption of the test version of the veteran status questions.
