The Cross-Wave Imputation of Cognitive Functioning Measures 1992-2020 is now available. This file contains imputations for cognitive functioning data for HRS 1992 through 2020. The objective was to perform imputations for respondents (self-respondents only, proxy reports are not included) with missing cognition data using a multivariate, regression-based procedure using Imputation and Variance Estimation (IVEware) software. We used a combination of relevant demographic, health, and economic variables, as well as prior (when available) and current wave cognitive variables to perform the imputations.
