January 31, 2007
The HRS Tracker 2004 (Final, Version 2.0) is now available.
The HRS 2004 Tracker file contains basic demographic information, interview status, and information about if, how, and when an interview was conducted. The HRS 2004 Tracker file also contains sample weights for HRS households, respondents, and nursing home residents. A detailed description of the data is provided in the accompanying documentation file.
- The addition of current wave NDI information.
- Restructuring of NDI information, so it is now a permanent characteristic rather than wave specific.
- Renaming of the 'MESTATUS' variables so that they are now project specific (CAMS03, CAMS05, PDS05, etc.).
- Some individual cases were recoded. See the data description for details.
