Survey Fielding

The 2021 Military Family Lifestyle Survey is now closed. We look forward to sharing the results in early 2022!

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

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