Metrics That Matter

As an applied policy research institute, focused on translating research, data and analytics to change “on the ground” for veterans in communities, we measure success a number of ways, including measuring policy impact. A few key metrics for our systems change work and focus include:

  1. Service members, veterans, and families of the fallen have access to high quality higher education programs, and have the financial means to attend college or university. Service members, veterans and their families will also be competitive for admission to universities, colleges, trade schools, and other degree-producing institutions of higher learning.
  2. Service members, veterans, and families of the fallen are competitive for high quality jobs and stable employment after their transition out of service.
  3. Service members, veterans, their families, and the families of the fallen have access to health care, mental health services, prevention services, benefit information, wellness programs, and community supports
