  • Michael,

    Thank you for your comment and for your interest in military suicide. The 2017 DoDSER Annual Report does not include group comparisons between those involved in combat operations and those not involved. The DoDSER system is a surveillance system designed to track suicide events over time and, as such, direct comparisons of risk or contextual factors between different subgroups are not undertaken for its Annual Report. These types of comparisons are better suited to formal research.

    Sincerely,

    The DoDSER Team
