HRS 2010 Core (Final, Version 4.0)

March 17, 2014

The HRS 2010 Core Final Release (Version 4.0) is now available.

This release corrects several issues with the version 3.0 release. The list of issues and corrections is below:

  • Three records were removed because they did not meet the sample selection criteria. The three records are: 9203370010, 9203370020 and 9020540010.
  • Corrected MA023 in H10A_H so that those who said "Yes" in MA020 were coded as 3 (Yes - assigned from MA020).
  • Re-masked the state variables (MF036M, MF052M, MF068M, MH153M, and MSO52M).
  • Corrected MN049_1A, MN049_1B, MN049_1C, MN049_1D, MN049_1E, MN049_2A, MN049_2B, MN049_2C , MN049_3A, MN049_3B, MN049_3C.
  • A programming error caused the data to be stored in temporary variables as opposed to the permanent or released variables. The data have been recovered and written into the permanent (released) variables. These corrected variables include:
  •      MN049_1A PRIV PLAN HI- WHO COVERED- 1-1
         MN049_1B PRIV PLAN HI- WHO COVERED- 1-2
