2021 Military Family Lifestyle Survey

The survey is now closed. We look forward to sharing the results in early 2022!

Since 2009, Blue Star Families’ annual Military Family Lifestyle Survey (aMFLS) has been providing a comprehensive understanding of the experiences and challenges encountered by military- and Veteran-connected families. The data collected helps local and national government leaders better understand the realities that military, Veteran, and National Guard and Reserve families face.

Keep an eye out for the results, which will publish in early 2022!
