SEARCH: VA disability database

December 5, 2011 

Use this database to search by ZIP Code to see the number of veterans on the VA's disability rolls broken down by period of war.

You can also see additional detail about the number of veterans with the highest disability rating of 100, as well as the number of veterans with key mental and physical disabilities, such as post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, tinnitus and back strain.

The VA data doesn't indicate if somebody served specifically in Iraq or Afganistan. It instead counts all veterans from the first Gulf War in 1990 on one broad "Gulf War" category. We identified an "Iraq era" group of veterans who were listed as "Gulf War" and who left active duty in 2003 or later, when soldiers began to return from Iraq or Afghanistan.
