November 28, 2011
The Imputation of Cognitive Functioning Measures data file 1992-2008 (Version 2.0) is now available. This dataset replaces the previous (1992-2006) file and now includes imputations for 2008.
The Imputation of Cognitive Functioning Measures 1992-2008 (V2.0) release contains imputations for cognitive functioning data for HRS 1992 through 2008. The objective was to perform imputations for respondents with missing cognition data using a multivariate, regression-based procedure using Imputation and Variance Estimation (IVEware) software. We used a combination of relevant demographic, health, and economic variables, as well as prior and current wave cognitive variables to perform the imputations. Prior wave cognitive scores were used to perform the imputations, except for the baseline waves for each of the cohorts where subsequent wave scores were used instead. Additional information about our imputation strategy is provided in the data description for this data product.
