    U.S. households headed by veterans are better off than those headed by non-veterans

    U.S. military veterans and their families have consistently had higher standards of living than non-veterans over the past 40 years. Households headed by veterans have higher incomes and are less likely to live in poverty, on average, and this is especially the case for veterans in racial or ethnic minority groups and those without a college degree.
