Note: This researcher contribution consists of a SAS file (.sas7bdat), a text file (.txt), and related documentation. The data contain the polygenic index for phenotypes described in Becker et al. (2021), for European-ancestry HRS respondents who provided salivary DNA between 2006 and 2012. Additional methodology is available in the documentation.

HRS Researcher Contributions are provided by fellow researchers interested in sharing their work. Interested researchers are encouraged to contribute their own datasets by submitting them via electronic mail to HRS User Support. HRS does not produce these files and thus cannot support them, nor be responsible for their content or use. They are provided here as a service to the research community.
