Complete AHEAD Wave I Public Release Now Available


The complete AHEAD Wave I Public Release (version 2.10) is now available via this web site.

Version 2.10 contains the helper file, so all AHEAD Wave 1 Public Release data is available for download. Many inconsistencies in helper information, both across and within datasets, were checked into and corrected. There will still be occasional errors in the helper data (as is usual with complex data sets), but users should find it much improved over prior releases.

To download the files, go to Datasets and Files/ (register)/ Public Release Datasets and Files/ AHEAD Wave 1 [1993].

Please send any questions you may have concerning AHEAD Wave I data to HRS Questions at Thank you!
