Cross-Wave Labor Section Carry Forward Variables

  • When an HRS respondent reported no change in employment status since the previous interview, certain questions relating to current employment were not asked. The files in this data release carry forward the information from prior waves whenever selected employment variables have been "skipped" in the current wave.
  • This dataset replaces the Researcher Contribution of the same name released in February 2003
