March 16, 2021

The Disability Analysis File (DAF) V1.0 is now available. The DAF is an analytical file covering the time period 1994 through 2018 of administrative data from historical, longitudinal and one-time data on HRS respondents who participated in the Supplemental Security Income (SS) or Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) programs and who consented to allow the HRS to obtain their administrative benefits records at the Social Security Administration. Two versions of the DAF are available to restricted data users, one without geographic identifiers and one with geographic identifiers, depending on researcher’s needs. Refer to the Data Description for more information.
