New Data on Genetics, Biomarkers, Covid-19, and Life History using HRS

This workshop will provide guidance on the basic design and content of the study and use of the data. Presentations will also provide in-depth coverage on new data resources in genetics and life histories as well as recently added content on responses to COVID-19. New genetic data resources include APOE and serotonin transporter alleles, polygenic risk scores, candidate genes, and epigenetic clocks. New life history data resources provide detailed information on experiences in child and young adulthood including residences, education, partnerships, jobs, and caregiving. COVID-19 data include direct experience of COVID-19 and effects of the stimulus payments and of COVID-19 on health care access, work and business, living arrangements, and caregiving. Research examples will illustrate how the data can be used in gerontological research.
