The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between mental health disorders among veterans on the basis of age, gender and income levels. This study relied on secondary data analysis using the California Health Interview Survey adult public use data file. There were 6,058 adult veteran survey participants, of which 212 were adult veterans with mental health disorders.
Chi-square analysis results reveal a significant association between veterans with mental health disorders and gender and income levels. No association was found between mental health and age; however, other studies point to an association between the two. Future research should explore these associations while delving deeper into war era, combat trauma, and military branch of service the veteran was exposed to. Additionally, the research should not be limited to one data set and should include all readily available data provided by other institutions such as the VA and other Public Health organizations.
