Scientific Releases of SHARE

This project takes care of the conceptualisation and further development of the programs for the scientific data releases of SHARE. It adjusts the release programs for new waves, countries and modules by including them in the overall data base management structure. This comprises writing programs to handle all the complex raw data, user-friendly re-coding of variables, harmonization of variables within and across waves, a comprehensive labelling of variables and where necessary adjustments for future waves in coordination with the respective country teams. In addition, this project encompasses the inclusion of generated harmonized indicator variables e.g. for health, education, housing, etc. and the integration of special data sets that have to be coordinated with external experts, as a means of support for SHARE data users.
