1995 Change Log

Dec 22, 1995:
- Error corrected: The papers categorized as "AHEAD 1994 Working Paper Series" is (for now) more appropriately labelled "Papers Based on AHEAD Wave 1 (1994)", as it is not yet an official series. Papers have yet to be chosen for the series, and authors have yet to be contacted.

Dec 20, 1995:
- A listing of HRS Wave 2 Preliminary Results Workshop papers (1995) is now a part of Papers and Publications. 17 viewable abstracts are available.
- 14 viewable abstracts were added to the 1994 AHEAD Wave 1 Working Paper Series under Papers and Publications. In addition, paper titles were updated and new papers added.
- Papers and Publications update: Papers from the 1994 HRS Wave 1 Working Paper Series should now be requested through HRS Questions (hrsquest@isr.umich.edu), not Heather Hewett, as was previously the case.
- Web page error corrected: Under Information/Reference/HRS Information, in the document "HRS Report to 1992 Respondents", the figure titled "Chances in 100 of Working Full-Time at: Age 62/Age 65" was not originally the correct figure.
- Two sets of errors in the HRS Wave 1 Data Description, Version 1.0, added to Information/Errors (Section 6, Data Description; Section D. Concepts of Merging). Date of posting added to each error listed.
- AHEAD Overview (Information) modified: Previously it appeared in the AHEAD Overview that AHEAD data had already been linked to Medicare files, among others. In fact this is not yet the case; the work is still in progress. When such linkages are available, even though access will be restricted, an announcement will be made on the HRS and AHEAD Web Page. This holds true for HRS linkages as well.

Dec 18, 1995:
- News item added: "HRS, AHEAD, and PSID at the ASSA Annual Meeting in San Francisco".
- News item added: "Staff Availability During the Holiday Season".
- News item added: "A Practicum on the Health and Retirement Survey".
- Working paper series (in Papers and Publications) are now listed in reverse chronological order. The working papers within those series are now alphabetized by author.

Dec 14, 1995:
- Web page error corrected: The official address for sending AHEAD questions and comments is "aheadask@isr.umich.edu", which had not been reported correctly. Please update your e-mail address listing.
- Web page error corrected: AHEAD early results workshop papers are not yet being distributed. It was incorrectly reported that they were available by contacting "aheadask@isr.umich.edu", and this is not the case. They will be distributed by different means at a later date.
- Updated HRS and AHEAD Web Page credits.

Dec 07, 1995:

Any and all suggestions are certainly welcome.
