The Power of Data
“SHARE is a unique observatory for policy effects over the life course and for people‘s reactions to policies and events like reforms and crises. Our aim is to improve people’s quality of life with high-quality research on their health and socioeconomic living situations and to help making policy reforms more targeted to the needs of people”,
says SHARE-ERIC managing director, Prof. Dr. h. c. Axel Börsch-Supan, PhD.
SHARE is the largest social science panel study and has set new standards in research and scientific data collection. It has global impact since it not only covers all EU member countries in a strictly harmonized way but additionally is embedded in a network of sister studies all over the world, from the Americas to Eastern Asia.
