Early HRS Working Papers Archive

Most of the papers in the HRS/AHEAD Working Paper Series result from the analysis of early release datasets created from the first waves of data collection on the studies. The primary purpose for these papers was to analyze data quality and to inform the next round of data collection on areas needing improvement. The series includes papers from four early results workshops (HRS Wave 1, HRS Minority Perspectives, AHEAD Wave 1, and HRS Wave 2). HRS staff members have not attempted to validate either the data or the statistical analyses contained in the working papers.
