It is very difficult to estimate the mental health effects of the trauma of war. This article examines the many measurement and inferential issues associated with assessing mental health following wars. It illustrates how these issues can be handled in a case study of post-conflict Bosnia–Herzegovina, and reports the results indicating that there are small differences in mental health among people with different exposures to the conflict in that country.

Keywords: war trauma; mental health; Bosnia–Herzegovina; post-conflict
