Abstract/Summary The Department of Veterans’ Affairs commissioned the Vietnam Veterans Family Study, a comprehensive survey of Vietnam veterans and Australian Defence Force personnel and their families, in 2007. The survey was intended to enable an assessment of the impact of service in the Vietnam War on the lives of the sons and daughters of Australia’s veterans. It is based on a study design in which the families of Vietnam veterans can be compared with the families of other men who served in the Australian military during the Vietnam War (1962 to 1975) but were not deployed (referred to here as Vietnam-era personnel). Using this approach, differences between the experiences of sons and daughters of Vietnam veterans and Vietnam-era personnel can be used to estimate the impact of service in the Vietnam War, provided that rival explanations can be excluded.
