SummaryThe “Survey of Health, Ageing and Retirement in Europe” (SHARE) is a European Research Infrastructure that was designed to help finding answers to the societal challenges of today. At regular intervals, it collects information on the lives of older Europeans in order to analyse the effects of and the reactions to population ageing, which are made even more dramatic by the financial crisis. A new open access publication based on the latest data sheds light on changes in all key areas of the lives of Europeans today: finances, work, health, and social and family networks.
