1992 HRS (Final Release, Version 2.0): Miscoded data in V504 in Health.DA

November 21, 2005

At V504 the code values for Inap and 0 = Less than one year ago are incorrect in the HRS Public Release Data. In order to correct the data, users should recode the . (Inap) codes to equal 0 (Less than one year ago), and recode the 0 codes to equal . (Inap).

The data as they currently appear in the HRS Public Release data file:
