HRS 2006 Core (Final Release, Version 2.0): Correction to the data and codebook for section LB

September 17, 2009

In the 2006 HRS Final Release (Version 2.0), the variables KLB008C - KLB008G were out of order in the codebook for Section LB. The data and the labels were correct, however, and match the paper questionnaire.

Also, three cases were recoded from blank to 5 on KLBCOMP (MODE COMPLETED LEAVE BEHIND QNAIRE), thereby making KLBCOMP consistent with KLBELIG (2006 LEAVE BEHIND ELIGIBILITY). The cases affected are: HHID 201486 PN 010; HHID 203144 PN 010; and HHID 203872 PN 010.

The corrections to the data and codebook can be obtained by downloading the ASCII data and section LB of the codebook.
