    This part of the mid-term review of the Health and Retirement Study (HRS) provides an overall assessment of the utility of HRS data for research targeting the nature and influence of social connectedness. As one of the major dimensions of the social aspects of psychosocial influences, social connectedness is among the most complicated in terms of definition, conceptualization, and measurement. However, the century-long body of theory and findings couple with a recent resurgence of research on the critical impact of these ties for health, illness, and health care to call for an examination of the richness in and limitations of current HRS data.
