Publications based on SHARE Data

More than 3400 publications based on SHARE data have been published worldwide (March 2022). The latest detailed statistic on numbers and types of SHARE publications can be found >> here.

These publications with SHARE data are registered from researchers all over the world and from different research areas and they are additionally presented centrally on our website. 

Under the category of SHARE publications, please find all (known to us) SHARE based publications sorted by type and outlets. 

  • First Results Books (FRB): 
    About every two years, a FRB with SHARE data from the latest survey wave is published. The aim of this volume is to stimulate further research with the data (To access the latest FRB please click on the picture >>) .
