Objective: To assess periodically the health status of a cohort of 1991 Gulf War veterans by comparing various health outcomes with those of their military peers who were not deployed to the Gulf.

Methods: We conducted a follow-up health survey to collect health information among population-based samples of 30,000 veterans (15,000 Gulf War veterans and 15,000 Gulf Era veterans [not deployed in the Gulf War]) using a structured questionnaire.

Results: Gulf War veterans reported significantly higher rates of:

• Unexplained multi-symptom illness,
• Chronic fatigue syndrome-like illness,
• Posttraumatic stress disorder,
• Functional impairment,
• Health care utilization,
• A majority of selected physical conditions and all mental disorders queried during the survey…

…than did Gulf Era veteran controls.

Conclusions: Fourteen years after deployment, 1991 Gulf War veterans continue to report a higher prevalence of many adverse health outcomes, compared with Gulf Era veterans.
