Our Survey Research

The 2016 annual Military Family Lifestyle Survey results are in!


Active-duty military members make up less than one percent of our American population, willingly missing both small moments and huge milestones at home while taking on the responsibility of protecting our country.  Military families serve along with their service members. That’s where Blue Star Families steps in – working to support and encourage the resiliency of military families around the world.

The annual Military Family Lifestyle Survey, the largest of its kind, is one of the most important resources for information about the current state of the military community and is used by government officials from the White House, Congress, the DOD, and state and local officials to help understand the unique needs and challenges of military families.


Making sure your voice is heard

The Blue Star Families annual Military Family Lifestyle Survey is the leading resource for policy makers, corporations and nonprofits to understand the issues military families face. It is a unique opportunity for military families’ voices to be heard by key decision-makers.
