VA is Using Data to Improve Veterans' Lives

VA Open DataWhat is VA Open Data?

The VA is working to make information resources easier to find, access and use, while protecting individual personal data.

VA's Open Data initiative strives to provide easy access to information that can fuel entrepreneurship, innovation and public policy research, such as:

  • Patterns and comparative rates of health conditions for vulnerable Veteran groups
  • Location information for Veteran gravesites across the U.S.
  • Analysis on the growing number of women Service members and Veterans
