HRS Minority Sample Expansion Competitive Revision (F014462)

a PSC Research Project

Investigators:   David Weir, Steven Heeringa, Mary Beth Ofstedal

This competing revision to the Health and Retirement Study (NIA U01AG009740) will increase the number of African-American and Hispanic participants in the Early Baby Boom and Mid-Boomer cohorts of the HRS (birthyears 1948-59). It will also add a smaller number of non-minority households in the same cohorts from the same neighborhoods. Specifically, it will conduct a population screen to identify eligible households based on age, race, and ethnicity. It will conduct baseline interviews with them as part of the 2010 survey and fully integrate them in all HRS data collection activities in 2010 and 2011, including biomarker collection and mail surveys. Co-funding from the Social Security Administration is anticipated to cover interviewing costs.

Funding Period: 09/30/2009 to 12/31/2011

Country of Focus: USA
