Codes and Frequencies
ARMFTIM2 indicates whether an individual aged 26-86, who has ever served in the U.S. Armed Forces, was active-duty in August 1990 to 2001 (including the Persian Gulf War).
Active duty does not include training for the Reserves or National Guard, but does include activation for service in the U.S. or in a foreign country, in support of military or humanitarian operations. The value of the final annual person weight (WTFA) for active duty military personnel is zero, so they are not included in national (i.e., weighted) estimates.
