Description of the services
SHARE has previously collected nine waves of data, where most of the questions provided information about the circumstances of respondents' lives at the time of the interview or in their childhood. Due to the outbreak of the Corona virus in March 2020 all face-to-face interviews needed to be stopped and instead a Corona telephone survey was conducted. These necessary measures also had consequences on SHARE´s ninth wave, where a second Corona telephone survey was conducted.
SHARE's tenth wave shall tie again to earlier waves. It collects health variables (e.g. self-reported health, physical and cognitive functioning, use of health care facilities), psychological variables (e.g. well-being, life satisfaction, control beliefs), economic variables (e.g. work activity, income, retirement behaviour, wealth and consumption), social support variables, (e.g. family and social network, family support, intergenerational transfers of money and time). As in previous waves the questionnaire includes mainly closed questions as well as physical and mental health tests. The data will be available free of charge to the scientific research community.
SHARE-ERIC treats procurement candidates and tenderers equally and in a non-discriminatory way, independent of whether or not they are based in the European Union.
All procurement follows the principles of transparency, non-discrimination and competition.
