The RAND HRS Fat Files contain all the raw variables collected at the Respondent or household-level, except those from "Other Person" sections (i.e., data on children, siblings, household members, helpers, and transfers). The files are easily merged with one another and with the RAND HRS Longitudinal File, which can expedite the preparation of analytic files from HRS. They were developed by the RAND Center for the Study of Aging from HRS 2014 Core (Final, V2.0).
The RAND Center for the Study of Aging creates the RAND HRS data products under subcontract from HRS. The HRS and the RAND products are supported by the National Institute on Aging (NIA) and the Social Security Administration (SSA).
