Exact Date of Birth, Death and Interview Released as Restricted Datasets
June 7, 2010
To protect respondent confidentiality, HRS only releases month/year for interview date, birth date, and date of death. For researchers who need exact date information (MMDDYYYY), the following restricted datasets have been created.
- Respondent Date of Birth
- Exit Date of Death
- Date of Interview (1992-2008)
These data products match Tracker 2008, and are uniquely identified by Household Identifier (HHID) and Person Number (PN).
