The HRS Tracker 2018 file (Early, Version 1.0) is now available.
This version of Tracker updates for both the final release of HRS 2016 and the early release of HRS 2018. It includes information for all cases of the continuing cohorts (AHEAD, HRS, CODA, WB, EBB, MBB and LBB) enrolled for 2018 data collection.
The Tracker file is created to facilitate the use of HRS data within and across waves. It contains one record for every person who was ever eligible to be interviewed in any wave. The Tracker file is named for the most recent interview wave covered in the file.
