Linking 1940 U.S. Census Data for Five Modern Surveys on Health and Aging

Research Project Description

This is part of a five-year project to link records from the 1940 U.S. Census to participant data from five ongoing national longitudinal studies: Wisconsin Longitudinal Study (WLS), Panel Study of Income Dynamics (PSID), Health and Retirement Study (HRS), National Social Life, Health and Aging Project (NSHAP), and National Health and Aging Trends Study (NHATS). The project supplements the data available in these studies with rich information on early life social, economic, family, neighborhood, and environmental circumstances, and makes these data available to the research community.

The project is based at the University of Minnesota (Rob Warren, PI) and includes Co-Investigators at the University of Wisconsin, University of Chicago, Westat, and the University of Michigan. University of Michigan personnel assemble the data extracts containing individual identifiers used to link PSID and HRS participants to their Census 1940 records, perform that linkage, and prepare and disseminate data files and documentation for the linked Census data for PSID and HRS.
