In 2010, Estonia, Hungary, Portugal and Slovenia joined SHARE wave 4, which is the third regular panel wave of the survey following the SHARELIFE life history questionnaire. The scientific use file will be released in November 2012, including a brand new social network module based on a name generator approach – making SHARE the very first international survey to provide social network information in a detailed and comparative way.
In the German part of the study, three scientific method projects have been additionally implemented, including innovative biomarkers (e.g. dried blood spots, waist circumference, and blood pressure), the linkage with the German pension data as well as non-response experiments.
