New York: Percentage of Women Veterans by County (2015)
This map shows the amount of veterans as a percentage of the total population by county. This data is taken from the Veteran Population Projection Model 2014, a project conducted by the National Center for Veterans Analysis and Statistics. See more here. "The Veteran Population Projection Model 2014 (VetPop2014) provides the latest official Veteran population projection from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). VetPop2014 is an actuarial projection model developed by the Office of the Actuary (OACT) for Veteran population projection from Fiscal Year FY2014 to FY2043. Using the best available Veteran data by the end of FY2013, VetPop2014 provides living Veteran counts by key demographic characteristics such as age, gender, period of service, and race/ethnicity at various geographic levels."
The percentage of veterans by county was calculated using the veteran population data from the NCVAS and total population by county data from the US Census.
Jefferson County is an outlier in the data and is represented in black.
