HRS Wave 3 Alpha Error Update



A problem concerning the id variables in the HRS Wave 3 Alpha release has been brought to the attention of the HRS Staff. This problem could have a significant impact on users' ability to merge individual sections of these data. On June 22, 1997 a corrected version of the file "" was placed on the private HRS FTP site. Users who downloaded the HRS Wave 3 Alpha release prior to June 22, 1997 should download this newer version of these data as soon as possible.

Users who wish to have access to HRS preliminary releases may send electronic mail to Preliminary data releases are in a raw format and difficult to use, but available much sooner than public (web site) releases.

Any questions concerning this matter should be directed to:

Thank you,
HRS Staff
