Questionnaires were mailed to 5,000 households interviewed in the HRS 2000 core survey. If a selected household had two panel members in it, one panel member was randomly selected to receive the questionnaire.
The survey included questions about individual activities, household patterns of consumption, and individual use of prescription drugs.
