The latest data released from the 2021 census shows veterans are more likely to volunteer in their communities.
“Analysis of data from the 2021 Census has delivered key insights into education, employment and income for the half million former service members (496,300) of the Australian Defence Force (2.4 per cent of the Australian population aged 15 years and over).
“The data also showed higher levels of volunteering for former service members aged 25-44 when compared to people who have never served in the ADF.
“Former service members aged 15-64 are more likely to work in areas that contribute services to the public.”
