The HRS Tracker 2008 (Early, Version 1.0) is now available.

The HRS 2008 Tracker file contains one observation for each individual who has ever been eligible to be interviewed by HRS in any wave. For each person, it contains several fixed demographic characteristics and a large number of wave-specific variables indicating interview status, information about if, how, and when an interview was conducted, as well as information on nursing home status, and pension estimation information. The Tracker file also contains wave-specific sample weights for HRS households and respondents. A detailed description of the data is provided in the accompanying documentation file.
