Collection of labor force data through the CPS is necessary to meet the requirements in Title 29, United States Code, Sections 1 and 2. The Veterans Supplement provides information on the labor force status of veterans with a service-connected disability, combat veterans, past or present National Guard and Reserve members, and recently discharged veterans. Also, Afghanistan, Iraq, and Vietnam veterans are identified by location of service. Data are provided by period of service and a range of demographic characteristics. The supplement also provides information on veterans’ participation in various transition and employment and training programs. The data collected through this supplement will be used by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Veterans Employment and Training Service (VETS) and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to determine policies that better meet the needs of our Nation’s veteran population. In order to make the information for the supplement more relevant, twentyfour questions are proposed for addition starting with the 2021 Veterans Supplement. New questions include items about veterans’ transition from Active Duty to civilian employment, details about working with serviceconnected disabilities, awareness of VA benefits, and work duties while in the Armed forces.

The revised questionnaire underwent cognitive testing and expert review. II. Current Action Office of Management and Budget clearance is being sought for the Veterans Supplement to the CPS. A revision of a currently approved collection is needed to continue to provide the Nation with timely information about the labor force status of veterans with a service-connected disability, combat veterans, past or present National Guard and Reserve members, recently discharged veterans, and veterans who have served in Afghanistan, Iraq, or Vietnam. In addition, the Veterans Supplement will provide information to assist VA and VETS to develop programs and policies that smooth veterans’ transition into civilian employment, including for veterans with service-connected disabilities.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    The CPS has been the principal source of official Government 
statistics on employment and unemployment since 1940 (75 years). 
Collection of labor force data through the CPS is necessary to meet the 
requirements in Title 29, United States Code, Sections 1 and 2. The 
Veterans Supplement provides information on the labor force status of 
veterans with a service-connected disability, combat veterans, past or 
present National Guard and Reserve members, and recently discharged 
veterans. Also, Afghanistan, Iraq, and Vietnam veterans are identified 
by location of service. Data are provided by period of service and a 
range of demographic characteristics. The supplement also provides 
information on veterans' participation in various transition and 
employment and training programs. The data collected through this 
supplement will be used by the U.S. Department of Labor's Veterans 
Employment and Training Service (VETS) and the U.S. Department of 
Veterans Affairs (VA) to determine policies that better meet the needs 
of our Nation's veteran population.
    In order to make the information for the supplement more relevant, 
twenty-four questions are proposed for addition starting with the 2021 
Veterans Supplement. New questions include items about veterans' 
transition from Active Duty to civilian employment, details about 
working with service-connected disabilities, awareness of VA benefits, 
and work duties while in the Armed forces. In addition, many questions 
were revised; most of these changes were made to streamline or clarify 
language or to update questions to use more current terms. Finally, ten 
questions are proposed for elimination; these little-used questions 
include detailed questions about veterans' experiences with Transition 
Assistance Program workshops, strategies for obtaining employment 
(networking, etc.), and whether veterans receive a monthly check from 
the VA for a service-connected disability. The revised questionnaire 
underwent cognitive testing and expert review.

II. Current Action

    Office of Management and Budget clearance is being sought for the 
Veterans Supplement to the CPS.
    A revision of a currently approved collection is needed to continue 
to provide the Nation with timely information about the labor force 
status of veterans with a service-connected disability, combat 
veterans, past or present National Guard and Reserve members, recently 
discharged veterans, and veterans who have served in Afghanistan, Iraq, 
or Vietnam. In addition, the Veterans Supplement will provide 
information to assist VA and VETS to develop programs and policies that 
smooth veterans' transition into civilian employment, including for 
veterans with service-connected disabilities.
