RAND HRS Data File, Supported by NIA and SSA (v.L)
The RAND HRS Data file is a cleaned and easy-to-use version of data from twelve waves of the Health and Retirement Study data, including five entry cohorts: the original 1992 Health and Retirement Study (HRS) cohort; the 1993 Study of Assets and Health Dynamics (AHEAD) cohort; the Children of Depression and War Baby cohorts entering in 1998; and Early Baby Boomer cohort entering in 2004. Derived variables covering a broad though not complete range of measures have been constructed and named consistently across waves. It incorporates HRS data from 1992, 1993, 1994, 1995, 1996, 1998, 2000, 2002, 2004, 2006, 2008, and 2010 early release.
The National Institute on Aging (NIA) and the Social Security Administration (SSA) provided funding for the development of this file. SSA's Office of Research, Evaluation and Statistics provided important research direction in the design of this data file.
