Wave 7

In 2017, the main data collection of Wave 7 took place in 28 countries - full coverage of the EU was achieved by including 8 new countries in SHARE: Finland, Lithuania, Latvia, Slovakia, Romania, Bulgaria, Malta and Cyprus. The Wave 7 questionnaire contains a SHARELIFE module for all respondents who did not participate in Wave 3 (first SHARELIFE wave), as well as a standard module for all respondents who already answered a SHARELIFE interview. SHARELIFE focuses on people's life histories including all important areas of the respondents’ lives, ranging from partners and children to housing and work history to detailed questions on health and health care.

The scientific release of Wave 7 data is planned for spring 2019.
