The RAND Enhanced Fat Files contain most of the raw variables from each questionnaire section, collapsing them into a single respondent-level dataset for each wave. The files are easily merged with one another and with the RAND HRS dataset, which can expedite the preparation of analytic files from the HRS study. They were developed by the  RAND  Center for the Study of Aging from HRS 1996 Core (Final, V4.0).
