SHARE Research Topics

SHARE data are used in interdisciplinary research by scientists all over the world. Since the study includes demographic, social, economic, health-related, psychological, and medical variables, it provides data for researchers from a wide range of disciplines, from social scientists to medical researchers. This interdisciplinary approach shall ensure a comprehensive analysis of the ageing process and its consequences from as many angles as possible.

To give current insights into the research that is based on SHARE data, we summarize and present selected research findings here.

Furthermore, we offer a regular newsletter that provides you with current research findings that are based on SHARE data. To stay posted on current research, subscribe to our newsletter by sending an e-mail to info©share-project.org with the subject “Findings Newsletter”.
