Researcher Contribution: Future Elderly Model (FEM) Files

June 21, 2013

Files that support running of the Future Elderly Model (FEM) are now available from the HRS file download site. The FEM is a microsimulation developed and maintained by the Roybal Center for Health Policy Simulation in the Leonard D. Schaeffer Center for Health Policy and Economics at the University of Southern California. Because of the complexity of the simulation, support for these files outside a collaboration will not be provided. For more information or interest in collaboration, please refer to the FEM Website.

This researcher contribution contains all input files necessary for the FEM simulation. The input files are provided in Stata format, but access to the Stata statistical package is not required since the simulation program for which these files are designed can read Stata files directly.

Note: HRS Researcher Contributions are provided by fellow researchers interested in sharing their work. Interested researchers are encouraged to contribute their own datasets by submitting them via electronic mail to HRS User Support. HRS does not produce these files and thus can not support them, nor be responsible for their content or use. They are provided here as a service to the research community.
