August 06, 2008
HRS ADAMS 1 data (Early, Version 2.0) are now available.
The ADAMS Version 2.0 Early data release of August 2008 includes four, newly-released, Section E files, ADAMS1AE_R, ADAMS1AE_D, ADAMS1BE_R, and ADAMS1BE_D. Section E files include information obtained at the initial and follow-up assessments about names and dosages of prescription medication, vitamins/supplements, and other over-the-counter items taken in the previous two weeks.
In November 2007, the Section AA file, ADAMS1AA_R, was revised and re-released as Version 1.1 to include a new weight variable, AASAMPWT_F and a new education variable, EDYRS, which included a revised value for two respondents; the prior education variable, SCHLYRS, was dropped. The technical report describing the development and use of the sample weights was updated. The changes are described in section 5.D.3 (p. 23-24) of the report. A revised report is available here: http://hrsonline.isr.umich.edu/meta/adams/desc/ADAMSSampleWeights_Nov2007.pdf.
No changes have been made to Section AB, AD, AN, AG, BB, BD, BN, and BG files, released as Version 1.0 in February 2007.
