The HRS 2000 Exit Early Release (Version 1) is now available. Included are all sections of the exit interview.

HRS early releases are provided within a very short time of the end of a data collection period. They are provided for the convenience of users who wish to begin analyzing data prior to a final release being available. Early release files are at the respondent level.

The HRS 2000 Exit Early Release contains data for 1,348 respondents.

These files have NOT yet been approved for use with SSA derived restricted data. Any requests to do so must be submitted formally through the restricted data group. Approval is expected shortly, so watch the web page for announcements.

To access the data from the HRS main web page, follow the "Data/Documentation" link to the "Public File Download Area". Registration (free) is required for access.
