HRS 2016 Core

The 2016 HRS Core (Early, Version 2.0) is an early public release that includes cases from the six continuing HRS cohorts (HRS, AHEAD, CODA, WAR BABY, EARLY BABY BOOMER and MID BABY BOOMER) and the newly screened LATE BABY BOOMER cohort.

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.
