Harmonized MHAS

Harmonized Mexican Health and Ageing Study (Harmonized MHAS) is an easy-to-use version of data from the first 4 waves of the Mexican Health and Ageing Study (MHAS) with a set of harmonized variables suitable for cross-country analysis. Using the RAND HRS as a model, Harmonized MHAS defines variables as identically as possible with the RAND HRS to allow users to compare variables with all other Harmonized data sets. Documentation for each variable in Harmonized MHAS, including a description of its creation, the MHAS variables used, and descriptive statistics, is detailed in the Harmonized MHAS codebook.
