A higher percentage of female Veterans than male Veterans worked in management and professional and sales and office occupations in 2014. Nineteen percent of male Veterans worked in production and transportation occupations.
These occupations include machinists, drivers, and aircraft pilots, jobs similar to what male Veterans may have done while in the military.
Despite the total number of living veterans forecast to steadily decrease by 2030, the percentages of the younger ages groups (under 49) largely remain the same. Those in the 50-69 group see a gradual, steady decrease over the same time frame and those 70 and older are predicted to gradually and steadily increase by 2030.
