Session Type: Workshop


Interested in linking early life experiences to later life outcomes? The Health and Retirement Study and its international sister studies have new life history data in a range of content areas including residential, educational, occupational, partnership, and health history in early and young adulthood. All this can be linked with data on health, cognition, and psychosocial functioning in later life in these surveys. Sequential life history data pose unique data analysis challenges. During this half-day workshop, you will:

  • learn about the design and content of the new life history data in HRS and its sister studies around the world
  • learn how to use sequence analysis of the data
  • learn how others are using the data in their research
