2019 Military Spouse & Family Survey

Infographic Detailing the Facts and Figures

Coinciding with Military Spouse Appreciation Day (May 10), Pioneer Services has partnered with Military Spouse Magazine on the 2019 Military Spouse and Families Survey.  This online survey of 225+ military families inquired about family, financial, and lifestyle issues.  The results show improvement and areas of concern on a variety of issues including spending, saving, and home life – all compiled into an easy-to-read Results Infographic.

Key highlights include: 

  • 1 in 3 say mental/emotional stress is their biggest problem (up 16% over 2018)
  • Almost 1 in 3 do not expect their spouse to still be serving in two years
  • 20% are not prepared at all to meet a financial emergency (while alarming, this is down from 33% in 2018)
  • Nearly 8 out of 10 are spending the same or more than last year
  • 20% have more credit card debt than 12 months ago
    • 1 in 3 have more than $5k in credit card debt
    • 1 in 5 have more than $10k in credit card debt.

The complete survey results and findings are all available on Pioneer’s website at MAM19.Info. Findings from the 2019 Military Family/Spouse Survey are being shared with military leaders, policymakers, and military advocacy organizations to generate greater awareness for military families and the issues they face.
