Harmonized Data

The Harmonized MHAS data is produced in collaboration with the Gateway to Global Aging Data project. The Gateway to Global Aging Data (www.g2aging.org) is a web-based resource for accessing multidisciplinary panel data on aging, health, and retirement from the international family of Health and Retirement surveys.

The Harmonized MHAS data file incorporates data from the core interview data, the master follow-up file, household roster data, and next-of-kin data. Also available is the Harmonized MHAS End of Life file focusing on the next-of-kin interview and a Harmonized Mex-Cog file focusing on the MHAS Cognitive Ancillary Study.
