Abstract

Growing Older in America: The Health and Retirement Study describes the breadth and depth of the HRS to help familiarize a broad range of researchers; policymakers; media; and organizations concerned with health, economics, and aging with this data resource. Published in 2007, this colorful data book describes the HRS's development and features and offers a snapshot of research findings based on analyses of the Study's data. Sections of the report look at older adults health, work and retirement, income and wealth, and family characteristics and intergenerational transfers. More than 65 figures and tables illustrate the text.
