In addition to nearly 2 million female veterans, over 200,000 women currently serve on active duty. As more women join the military, the percent of female veterans is expected to increase in the next 25 years to 16.3%, from 9.4% today — making it all the more important to better understand the unique health challenges of these women.
Launched in 2002, The Sinai Community Health Survey is the largest community-driven health survey ever to be conducted in Chicago. The purpose of the Sinai Survey is to document the health status of selected community areas in Chicago; understand the social factors associated with health-related behaviors, service utilization, and outcomes; and use the findings to develop public health interventions and policies to address health inequities.
