Version 2.0 of the Form 831 Disability Records data set contains information on the initial medical determination for HRS respondents applying for disability benefits under Title II (Social Security) and Title XVI (Supplemental Security Income-SSI). Information is available for 792 respondents and 166 deceased spouses.

The primary keys for this table are HHID, PN, PERSON, BIC, RID, FLD_Y, FLD_M, DODEC_Y and DODEC_M. FLD_D (day) and DODEC_D (day) have been dropped. In an effort to help display individual records that may appear to be duplicates due to the drop of the day variables, the sequence variable SEQ - SEQUENCE NUMBER FOR PRIMARY KEY USE has been created. Note: Use PERSON to separate respondents from deceased spouses.

N: Information is available for 792 respondents and 166 deceased spouses.
