VETCIVWR
Veteran of the Civil War

Description

VETCIVWR indicates whether men performed either Union or Confederate military service during the Civil War. The coding scheme provides separate responses for army and navy service for the Union and Confederacy, as well as for unspecified Union service. Only men age 50+ born in the United States and all foreign-born males who immigrated to the United States before 1865 were supposed to respond to the question. However, the effective universe is all persons, since the "No" and "N/A" categories are combined in the 1910 PUMS. The 1910 Public Use Sample User's Guide reports that "the question was evidently omitted by many enumerators."
