Welcome Study Participants!

If you are reading this it is probably because you have been invited to take part in the Health and Retirement Study (HRS). On this site we have provided links to local pages containing information about the study as well as external sites related to retirement and aging. We hope you will find them interesting and informative.

Since its launch in 1992, the HRS has painted a detailed portrait of America’s older adults, helping us learn about this growing population’s physical and mental health, insurance coverage, financial situations, family support systems, work status, and retirement planning.

The full scope of the study is described in the publication
Growing Older in America: The Health and Retirement Study.
