HRS 2016 Core

The 2016 HRS Core (Early, Version 1.0) is an early partial public release. Only panel cases are included in the Early, Version 1.0 data file. This release includes cases from the six continuing HRS cohorts (HRS, AHEAD, CODA, WAR BABY, EARLY BABY BOOMER and MID BABY BOOMER), that had completed an interview by August 8th, 2017. There are only a handful (~600) of panel cases that are missing from the Early, Version 1.0 data. A complete release with the newly screened LATE BABY BOOMER cohort will be forthcoming when data collection concludes.

HRS early data releases are provided for users who wish to begin analyzing data prior to a final public release being available. Early release files have undergone a fair amount of data cleaning, but errors may be present in the data files and/or the associated codebooks. The Early release data files have been structured in a format consistent with Final release datasets.
