How do you take the survey?

You can take the survey online, via your phone, tablet or computer, or in a paper format that can be returned for review.


How long does it take?

We estimate it will take 10-15 minutes to complete the survey. The survey has to be completed in one sitting once you start. 


Is it anonymous?

Yes, the Arizona Veteran Survey is completely anonymous. No personally identifiable information is collected. At the end, survey takers are given the option to sign up to receive a copy of the survey summary and/or survey rewards, however this sign-up process is completely separate from the survey responses. 


Why is it important to finish the survey?

You can leave any question that you don’t want to answer blank, however we highly encourage you to finish the survey if you can. By finishing the survey, you help to provide the most complete information possible to inform how our community responds to the needs of our military and veteran community.


What happens to the information I provide?

The information you provide will be added together with the information from everyone else who takes the survey to provide a picture of the strengths, needs, challenges and opportunities for Arizona’s service members, veterans and their families. The information from the survey will also help us better understand how the military and veteran community is accessing resources and what barriers may be preventing access to those resources. 

All information will only be reported as group data. For the Indian Health Service and tribal questions, data will only be reported with the permission of the organizations.


What rewards are available?

To thank everyone for taking the time to complete the survey, we are offering several different rewards. Everyone who completes the survey can request that a copy of the survey summary be emailed to them. We will also have drawings for gift cards and the opportunity to designate a charity for a donation if we meet the overall survey targets of 1000 and 2500 surveys. 


Why are rewards available to complete the survey?

We want to acknowledge the time people are taking to complete the survey and also challenge our community to share the survey enough that we reach our goals for the total number of surveys completed.  


Why is it important to share the survey?

We need a comprehensive look at our military, veteran and family population so we need to hear everyone’s voice. By sharing the survey, you are helping to strengthen this effort and the results and ensuring that the voices of your family, friends and colleagues are heard.
