HRS Wave 2 Error Update: Wave 1 weights in W2IDV.* in err

07/17/97

ATTENTION HRS WAVE 2 PARTIAL RELEASE USERS:

Prior to this notice, the HRS Wave 1 weights had been incorrectly merged to the HRS Wave 2 Partial Release File "W2IDV.*". A new version of that file is available via the web page under "Data and Files"/ (register) / "HRS Wave II Files". All HRS Wave 2 Partial Release users will want to obtain this new file.

Analysts using the Wave 1 weights from the HRS Wave 1 Public Release (V14 and V15) will be unaffected, but will want the new file.

Analysts who are not using Wave 1 weights will be unaffected, but will want the new file.

Analysts using the Wave 1 weights from the HRS Wave 2 Partial Release (in W2IDV.*: W1HHWGT and W1PERWGT) will need to re-run their analyses that used those weights.

If you have questions concerning this matter, please send them via electronic mail to David Howell at dahowell@isr.umich.edu. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
