Hours of Care

Hours of care and information about individuals that the sampled person (SP) has identified in earlier sections as Helpers with activities are obtained in the Helpers (HL) section in the National Health and Aging Trends Study (NHATS). This technical paper provides guidance to users on how to create comparable hours of care variables across rounds of the NHATS.
