NDI 2000 File (Public) Early Release, Version 1.0

December 13, 2002

NDI 2000 File (Public) Early Release, Version 1.0 is now available. This file includes cases known to be deceased by HRS tracking as of the 2000 wave of data collection (excluding those previously matched in the 1995 linkage), and cases for whom vital status could not be determined during the 2000 wave. This file does not include records for respondents listed in the Tracker v3.0 file as being deceased based on the previous NDI match. Since the records in this early release have not been completely verified, users should assume that the final version of this dataset will contain multiple additions and deletions.

If you find any problems with the data, please report them to us via the Help Desk, or by sending e-mail directly to hrsquestions@umich.edu.
