New Experimental Modules for HRS 2014 Invited

The Health and Retirement Study is soliciting experimental modules for the 2014 Wave. Ideas for modules should be sent to the committee on experimental modules via email to or to the address below. You may provide specific survey questions if you wish, though this is not necessary; just the basic analytic idea, with some indications of the variables that the module should try to measure, is sufficient. It is also helpful to include references to recent publications on the topic, other studies that have treated the topic, names of persons familiar with the topic, or specific survey instruments. Priority will be given to modules that enhance HRS content to provide the greatest overall benefit to the research community. All modules must conform to the same overall design limitations (described below). Module data are released to the public at the same time as all other data from that survey wave (typically by June of the year after data collection). The HRS investigators will make the final decision about which modules to include in each wave of interviews

If you prefer to submit written suggestions, they may be sent to:

HRS Committee on Experimental Modules
