ClientWounded Warrior Project
Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) is a nonprofit organization founded in 2003 by a group of veterans and friends to serve veterans and service members who incurred a physical or mental injury, illness, or wound related to their military service on or after September 11, 2001.
WWP plays an important role in improving the lives of injured service members by
- Increasing public awareness of their needs
- Advocating for legislative and policy changes to address those needs
- Augmenting the government services available to them
In 2019, Westat is conducting the 10th Annual Warrior Survey of participants who receive regular communications from WWP, participate in WWP activities, or serve as witnesses before policymakers, including Congress.
Learn more about the Wounded Warrior Project’s Annual Warrior Survey.
Westat administers a web-based survey asking a wide variety of questions about the health and well-being of WWP members. The survey also asks about
- Services they receive from VA
- Experiences during deployment, including injuries sustained during military service
- Homelessness, financial status, social support, and sleep habits
Westat manages data collection, analyzes the data, and prepares reports on the survey results.
As part of our analysis, we use information from previous rounds of the survey to look for historical trends.
Results from the Annual Warrior Survey allow WWP to gain a better understanding of the challenges the 3 million+ post-9/11 veterans face every day. It identifies trends in the health and well-being of its participants as compared to other military populations and services provided to WWP members in order to better serve them.
