This thesis addresses the trend analysis of Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) prevalence across the different branches of armed services in the U.S military between FY2001 and FY2006, as well as the effects of deployment characteristics on the probability of being diagnosed with PTSD among the active duty service personnel in the different branches. On top of these, this study will also highlight the patterns of the comorbidity and treatment costs of PTSD across the different branches of armed services. The data used in the thesis are provided by TRICARE, the Department of Defense's (DoD) health care system and Defense Manpower Data Center (DMDC), to obtain the demographics, deployment characteristics (deployment location, deployment frequencies, deployment duration) and the inpatient and outpatient medical information and services rendered by physicians for all active duty service personnel whom were diagnosed with PTSD between FY2001 and FY2006.
