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