2019 Military
Spouse & Families Survey

MAM 16

THE RESULTS ARE IN…

To help celebrate Military Appreciation Month in May, we teamed up with Military Spouse Magazine, to examine a variety of issues affecting military families. This year we surveyed approximately 250 active-duty military spouses, families, and service members asking basic questions about financial concerns, relationship issues and everything in between. The results offer some valuable insights into the issues military families deal with on a daily basis. Comparing the results to surveys we conducted in previous years gives us a unique opportunity to monitor trends over time.
