2020 HRS Core

× Log in or create an account to download data files.

The HRS 2020 Core Final Release (Version 1.0) contains data from each of the seven HRS sub-samples (HRS, AHEAD, CODA, WAR BABY, EARLY BABY BOOMER, MIDDLE BABY BOOMER and LATE BABY BOOMER) for the 2020 Core questionnaire, including physical measures, blood pressure and psychosocial data but does not include results of blood tests. Those assay results will be released separately.

NOTE: In order to document question sequencing, we have provided (1) a version of the traditional box and arrow questionnaire (accessible from the questionnaire in the documentation link below) that reflects the questionnaire content at the end of the data collection period and (2) a “commented version” which includes all changes made for the 2020 instrument. Changes can be found by searching for “#@” in the document. The commented box and arrow questionnaires are available in the download set (h20qn.zip).
