What follows is a cross section of statistics from various sources dealing with different eras and different wars/conflicts. Not all of it pertains to PTSD but will probably be of interest. I cannot vouch for the accuracy of the statistics shown. The authoring location/body/person follows each set of figures so if you do not agree with what is shown please contact the author not THIS author. Thanks.
