New HRS/AHEAD Tracker File Available


A new HRS/AHEAD Tracker File (Version 1.0) is available under Datasets and Files/ Download Files/ (register)/ Public Release Datasets and Files/ "HRS/AHEAD Tracker File".

Version 1.0 of the HRS/AHEAD Tracker File contains variables from HRS Wave 1, AHEAD Wave 1, HRS Wave 2, AHEAD Wave 2, and the National Death Index as of AHEAD Wave 2. The HRS/AHEAD Tracker File is created for the most part from variables existing in other HRS/AHEAD data releases. It is most useful as an aid to doing longitudinal merges, using HRS and AHEAD together, and understanding the sample.

Users who use more than one wave of HRS/AHEAD are encouraged to download this dataset.
