In March 2006, a sub sample (N=1,920) of the Health and Retirement Study (HRS) participated in an Internet based survey developed jointly by the HRS, Survey Research Center, Institute for Social Research (ISR), at the University of Michigan, and the RAND Corporation. The National Institute on Aging at NIH (R01 AG020638) provided funding for the 2006 Internet Survey. The 2006 Internet Survey Final Release (Version 1.0) questionnaire contained several different topical areas, including Internet and computers, health and emotional problems, Social Security, numeracy items, psychosocial items, expectations, questions about housing, checking accounts, stocks, prescription drug usage, and insurance. Completed interviews were obtained from 1,352 HRS respondents. The 2006 Internet Survey is the second in a series of surveys that will be conducted on the Internet.
