Military to Civilian Questionnaire (M2C-Q)
The M2C-Q is a brief 16-item self-report measure of postdeployment reintegration difficulty among veterans. We estimate that the M2C-Q can be completed in 5 minutes. Items are rated on a 5-point likert scale ranging from 0 = no difficulty to 4 = extreme difficulty. Respondents can indicate “Does not apply” for the four items that assess relationship with spouse/partner, relationship with child/children, work, and school functioning. To form a total score, divide the sum of item scores by the number of items completed with responses other than “Does not apply.” In a study of 754 Afghanistan and Iraq war veterans, the M2C-Q demonstrated high internal consistency, factor analysis supported use of a single summary score and associations with theoretically related constructs provided initial support for the construct validity of M2C-Q scores. The M2C-Q is in the public domain and permission is not required to use it.
