2001 Consumption and Activities Mail Survey (CAMS) (Final, Version 3.0)

April 01, 2010

The 2001 Consumption and Activities Mail Survey (CAMS) Release (Final, Version 3.0) is now available.

What's new in Version 3.0: The only change in Version 3 is that all the CAMS weights have been dropped. Please see the HRS website for the HRS CAMS Weights 2001-2009 (Final, Version 1.0) data released on 03/30/2011.

Questionnaires were mailed to 5,000 households interviewed in the HRS 2000 core survey. If a selected household had two panel members in it, one panel member was randomly selected to receive the questionnaire. The survey included questions about individual activities, household patterns of consumption, and individual use of prescription drugs.

Note: Be sure to check the HRS File Merge Cross-Reference Table for up-to-date information on the restricted data merge status of this data set.

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