2003 Consumption and Activities Mail Survey (CAMS)

Version 2.0: The only change in Version 2 is that all the CAMS weights have been dropped. Please see the HRS website for the HRS CAMS Weights 2001-2009 (Final, Version 1.0) data released on 03/30/2011.

In 2003, questionnaires were mailed to 4,156 of the respondents who were in the 2001 CAMS. The remaining 843 respondents were lost due to death (n=372), loss to follow-up (n=173), and exclusion from the 2003 CAMS because they were participating in other HRS supplemental studies (n=298).
