About Us

Veteran saluting over statistical background

Who are we?

We develop statistical analyses and reports on a broad range of topics, operate VA’s data and statistics Web portal to disseminate Veteran data and statistics, and develop estimates and projections on Veteran populations.

Additionally, we lead interagency data-sharing collaborations with other Federal agencies, and conduct survey analyses and research including future iterations of the National Survey of Veterans.

We also lead the effort to implement corporate data governance and corporate data management in VA, and implement enterprise business intelligence tools and processes to support analysis and planning activities in VA.
