Veterans Administration’s Supportive Services for Veteran Families - Satisfaction Survey Data

The Veterans Administration’s Supportive Services for Veteran Families program aims to “to promote housing stability among very low-income Veteran families who reside in or are transitioning to permanent housing.” The VA outsources those services to a network of 200+ selected nonprofits, which it grants hundreds of millions of dollars per year. When a veteran exits a grantee’s program, they’re invited to complete a satisfaction survey. The Data Liberation Project filed a FOIA request for the survey data, and received three spreadsheets in return (among other documents), detailing nearly 40,000 anonymized responses from fiscal years 2016–20 and 2022.

Note: The data can be a bit tricky to interpret if you have never worked with a data dictionary before. Please feel free to email a reference librarian to make an appointment for help if needed!
