Providing Pathways Guidance to Young Veterans for a Successful Transition to Civilian Workforce

Flinders University Study

The report matches DVA administrative data with community data from the Student Outcomes Survey (SOS) and the Household Income and Labour Dynamics in Australia (HILDA) survey, to better understand potential workforce outcomes for DVA clients. The report provides a predictive analysis of the impact that health conditions, medical discharge status, and service type, have on a veteran’s ability to look for and participate in work assuming community trends apply to veteran groups. The findings are not based on actual veteran employment outcomes. Nevertheless, the study is informative of potential outcomes. DVA’s rehabilitation program is aligned with the study findings.

It is important to note that the findings should be read in context of the report and as they are general in nature, they should not be considered applicable at an individual level. A one page overview of the study is also attached.

Further research activities about rehabilitation outcomes for veterans include the MRCA Rehabilitation Long-Term Study and commencing in early 2017, an evaluation of the Goal Attainment Scale tool, which is used in rehabilitation plans.
