HRS Co-Investigators & Committees
HRS Steering Committee
The Steering Committee is charged with providing timely advice to the PI about all relevant matters of concern to HRS. This includes laying out tasks to be performed by the expert working groups, monitoring progress of the study, and making recommendations about sample design, survey content and operational procedures. This committee meets formally once a year with the Principal and Co-Investigators.
NIA's HRS Monitoring Committee
The NIA's HRS Monitoring Committee is an advisory group comprised of independent members of the academic research community as well as representatives of agencies interested in the study. This committee provides advice and recommendations to the NIA Program Officer. The structure of the Monitoring Committee allows and encourages the coordination of federal statistical operations, which increases the value of the study to both federal and research communities. One result of the unique configuration of the Data Monitoring and Design Committee has been much needed support in terms of assistance with the administrative linkages efforts of the study, and the provision of recommendations for substantial additional funding.
