Veteran Interstate Migration and VA Health Service Use.
Cowper, Diane C.; Longino, Charles F., Jr.
Gerontologist, v32 n1 p44-50 Feb 1992
Used secondary data sources to examine relative importance of geographic mobility as factor affecting use of Veterans Administration (VA) health services by older veterans. Found that variation in state VA health service admission rates was better explained primarily by characteristics of resident nonmobile veteran population and characteristics of veterans migrating to state, not just by numbers.
