In general, U.S. veterans have lower unemployment rates than nonveterans. However, Gulf War-era II veterans (served since September 2001) have significantly higher unemployment than veterans from other periods and nonveterans. While the unemployment rate dropped in 2011 for nonveterans, the unemployment rate rose for Gulf War-era II veterans.
