More than 4.000 publications based on SHARE data


Number of scientific SHARE-based publications surpasses new threshold and is steadily increasing.

Since its start, researchers worldwide have based their research on SHARE data to study the impact of health, social, economic and environmental policies on the lives of Europeans citizens and beyond. Among these scientific publications are articles in peer-reviewed journals, books, book chapters as well as working and policy papers. All of them are being documented and entered into SHARE’s publication database.

In January 2024, the 4000th publication based on SHARE data was documented. It was authored by Yuhui Huang, Hui Chen, Mengyan Gao, Xiaozhen Li, Ting Pang, Shuang Rong, Xin Xu and Changzheng Yuan and dealt with “Self- and interviewer-reported cognitive problems in relation to cognitive decline and dementia: results from two prospective studies”. Combining data from SHARE on 40.449 European respondents with data from its sister study CHARLS on 10.976 Chinese respondents, the paper’s findings suggest that interviewer-reported cognitive problems may be early indicators of cognitive decline and dementia in middle-aged and older adults across different populations. As a result, a combination of self- and interviewer-reported cognitive problems could be utilized to identify individuals at high risk of developing cognitive decline and dementia, providing an important time window to delay and prevent it.

About SHARE:

The Survey of Health, Ageing and Retirement in Europe (SHARE) is a research infrastructure for studying the effects of health, social, economic and environmental policies over the life-course of European citizens and beyond. From 2004 until today, 530,000 in-depth interviews with 140,000 people aged 50 or older from 28 European countries and Israel have been conducted. Thus, SHARE is the largest pan-European social science panel study providing internationally comparable longitudinal micro data, which allow insights in the fields of public health and socio-economic living conditions of European individuals.
