The HRS Tracker 2016 file (Early, Version 3.0) is now available.
This version of Tracker includes both respondent and household weights and removes six lines which we determined were duplicates. It contains all cases of the continuing cohorts (AHEAD, CODA, HRS, WB, EBB, MBB, LBB), comprising 43,216 sample lines.
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.
