RAND HRS CAMS Data File 2019 (Version 1.0)
The RAND HRS CAMS Data File 2019 is a user-friendly version of Part B of the CAMS survey. It contains annualized, cleaned, and aggregated spending and consumption variables with consistent and intuitive naming conventions across waves. Specifically, total household spending and household consumption are calculated across all categories and for these subsets of spending: nondurables, durables, housing and transportation. These data can be easily merged to the RAND HRS and other HRS files as described in the data codebook.
As of 2022, ten waves of CAMS data have been released by HRS. The RAND CAMS data are based on 2001 (V3), 2003 (V2), 2005 (V1), 2007 (V1), 2009 (V1), 2011 (V2), 2013 (V2), 2015 (V1), 2017 (V1), and 2019 (V1) final data releases.
The National Institute on Aging (NIA) and the Social Security Administration (SSA) provided funding and support for the development of this file.
