Census bureau offers a new look at U.S. veterans
Published: July 16, 2012
WASHINGTON – A new infographic from the U.S. Census Bureau released late last week offers a snapshot of who makes up the nation’s veterans population, where they live and where they work.
Perhaps the most surprising figure is that veterans average $10,000 more a year in annual salaries than their civilian counterparts. Veterans own 9 percent of all U.S. businesses and helped generate $1.2 trillion in receipts in 2010.
You can view the infographic at the Census Bureau Web site, or in the blog post below:
