CalVet 2011 Women Veterans Survey
Call for Public Comment
The California Research Bureau, CalVet, and the Commission on the Status of Women and Girls are preparing a third Statewide Survey of California Women Veterans for release in the Summer of 2013. The goal of this survey is to help us understand who are our women veterans, how California’s women veterans use services, and what the needs are of California’s women veterans.
We are seeking public input to help improve this survey!

Survey Subject Papers
In 2008, the Commission on the Status of Women and Assemblymember (now Senator) Lois Wolk asked the California Research Bureau (CRB) to administer a survey to California women who had served in the Armed Forces. This survey led to "California's Women Veterans: The Challenges and Needs of Those Who Served," a 2009 report that provided insight to state legislators on the service barriers to California women veterans.

In 2011, CalVet and the Commission asked the CRB to conduct a second iteration of the Women Veterans Survey. This iteration of the survey was used to measure the current needs of women veterans and establish a baseline for service utilization. The survey was available from October 1, 2011 until January 31st, 2012. Nearly 900 women veterans responded to the survey.
