HRS Data Sets
The University of Michigan Health and Retirement Study (HRS) is a longitudinal panel study that surveys a representative sample of approximately 20,000 people in America, supported by the National Institute on Aging (NIA U01AG009740) and the Social Security Administration. Through its unique and in-depth interviews, the HRS provides an invaluable and growing body of multidisciplinary data that researchers can use to address important questions about the challenges and opportunities of aging.
Along with Dr. Sylvia Paz (UCLA) and Dr. Ron Hays (UCLA), Dr. Blanco proposed a new module on “retirement knowledge” and is selected to be included in the 2020 Health and Retirement Study (HRS) experimental modules.
