This project focuses on examination of the impact of service member deployment to a war zone on the service member s family, and is being conducted in collaboration with the Millennium Cohort Study MilCo team. As part of MilCo Panel 4, which will enroll about 62,000 new participants in 2011, a probability sample of married MilCo enrollees will be asked for contact information for their spouse, who will then be contacted and invited to participate in the MilCo Family Cohort FamCo. Spouses who consent will complete a 45-minute, internet-based assessment focused on spouse s perception of deployment stressors health and mental health status of family members and quality of family interpersonal relationships. During FamCo Year 1 the FamCo team worked with the MilCo team to develop the FamCo study design, spouse assessment, and data analysis and report plans the MilCo team received IRB approval of the FamCo assessment and data collection protocol and the Milco team submitted an OMB Supporting Statement, which as of 29 October 2010 has not yet been approved.
