|Primary Investigator(s):||Juster, Thomas and Robert J. Willis|
|Abstract:||The Health and Retirement Study is a national panel survey of people aged 51-61 (in 1992) and their spouses. Interviews are conducted every two years. The study is funded by the National Institute on Aging to provide researchers, policy analysts, and program planners with current data on the antecedents and consequences of retirement. Questionnaire topics include physical and cognitive functioning, retirement plans, family structure and transfers, demographic characteristics, housing, employment status, income, disability, health insurance, pension plans, job history, and attitudes, preferences, and expectations for the future. The survey data are being linked with administrative records from health insurers, pension plan providers, the Social Security Administration, the Health Care Financing Administration, and the National Death Index.|
