I'm looking for rates of military discharges by type - honorable, dishonorable, Other Than Honorable, Bad Behavior, Officer, ETC. It would be really, really awesome if I could find this information by veteran's living in state or city, specifically Chicago, Illinois. But just finding military discharge rates nationwide would be awesome.

I'm not an expert in this area, but I was told about this site:


Which has some data on veteran populations in the U.S. I'm not sure if it has discharge rates, but it might be a good place to start. You could try emailing some of the contact folks referenced in the datasets on that VA site, as they might have a better idea.

    You may also want to look at the Current Population Survey (CPS) Veteran's Supplement. The survey is a joint effort by the US Census and BLS. I can't seem to find a direct link to a dataset (except for Universities which require a subscription), so you may be stuck using data.gov's DataFerret. Commented Jan 8, 2014 at 22:29
