Wave 8

SHARE Questionnaires Wave 8

Compared to previous waves, wave 8 of SHARE was unique in many ways. While having a smooth start of fieldwork in October 2019, the COVID-19 pandemic started to hit Europe in early 2020. SHARE had to suspend its regular face-to-face interviewing in all 28 participating countries. The implementation of strict epidemiological control measures in nearly all participating countries made it infeasible to continue face-to-face fieldwork. Stopping the survey was particularly urgent considering SHARE’s target population of people aged 50+.  SHARE switched the interview mode to telephone interviewing, fielding a special “SHARE Corona” questionnaire in the summer of 2020.
