The SHARE Wave 8 Methodology Volume is out!


“Collecting Cross-National Survey Data in Times of COVID-19” now available

The new edition documents the most important questionnaire innovations, methodological advancements and new procedures introduced during the eighth wave of SHARE.

Compared to previous waves the eighth wave 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 and continues to affect all aspects of life until now – including survey research.

The volume is available as open access here.
