Data Alert for Version O
We have discovered a bug in our code that generates the counts of respondents' living siblings in the RAND HRS Version O dataset. We carry counts forward and backward to help fill missing values in other waves. As a result, 37 of the R/SwLIVSIB, R/SwLIVSIS, and R/SwLIVBRO variables have been affected.
A fix file containing HHIDPN and the full set of R/SwLIVSIB, R/SwLIVSIS, and R/SwLIVBRO variables has been created and can be sent to you by emailing RANDHRSHelp@rand.org. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused. Click here for a list containing the variables affected as well as the number and size of the differences.
