Carlson KF, Pogoda TK, Gilbert T, Mastarone G, O ME, Sayer NA. Prevalence and correlates of unemployment among Iraq and Afghanistan war veterans with deployment-related TBI history enrolled in the veterans health administration. [Abstract]. Brain Injury : [Bi]. 2017 Jul 5; 31(6-7):719-1017.




Abstract:

Over 20 000 Iraq and Afghanistan War Veterans with traumatic brain injury (TBI) use Veterans Health Administration (VHA) healthcare each year. Research has shown relatively high unemployment rates among civilians with TBI, but little is known about unemployment among recent war Veterans with TBI, particularly those receiving VHA care. The purpose of this study was to estimate the prevalence and correlates of unemployment in this population.
