The COVID-19 module of HRS 2020 is being administered to the 50% random subsample of households who were originally assigned to enhanced face-to-face interviewing (EFTF), in two random half groups, one starting in June and one in September. This special midterm release includes 3,266 respondents from the group released in June and was produced under an accelerated time frame to facilitate rapid access to HRS research data while the 2020 HRS data collection is still underway. Updates will be made in the future for additional cases and additional psychosocial questionnaire returns. Refer to the Data Description for more information.
