The 2020 Blue Star Families Military Family Lifestyle Survey is now open. The survey is for research purposes and is entirely voluntary. The following individuals — 18 years of age and older — are requested to complete the survey:
— Active-duty service members and their family members.
— National Guard service members and their family members.
— Reserve service members and their family members.
— Veteran service members and their family members.
The survey is completely confidential, and optional text responses are anonymous.
This survey has a long history of producing confidential, statistical information used by senior Department of Defense leaders to make decisions and prioritize efforts focused on all military families.
The survey includes questions about community connections, health concerns and wellness, education, employment, military children, financial challenges, civic engagement and public policy issues, among other topics.
