1. What is the intention of the SHARE Data & Documentation Tool?

The SHARE Data & Documentation Tool is a web application developed by CentERdata, Institute for data collection and research, in cooperation with SHARE Central at the Munich Center for the Economics of Aging (MEA). The SHARE Data & Documentation Tool is a management system for data and metadata of the Survey of Health, Ageing and Retirement in Europe (SHARE). For researchers, the SHARE Data & Documentation Tool is intended to be a fast, customizable, easy-to-use web interface for browsing and searching the SHARE (meta)data. One important feature of the system is that codebooks for all currently released SHARE waves can be generated in PDF format for download/printing.

On the main level of the SHARE Data & Documentation Tool you have the following options: Browse SHARE Waves, Search, and Browse Publications
