SHARE in the Czech Republic (EN)

Survey of Health, Ageing and Retirement in Europe

Welcome to the official website of the SHARE project in the Czech Republic.  SHARE is a multi-disciplinary international time-collection database of microdata on health, socioeconomic status and social and family networks of approximately 125,000 individuals (over 293,000 interviews) aged 50+ from all EU countries, Switzerland and Israel.

All information on the project can be found at  www.share-project.org

The data collection is carried out by the ScaC agency. More information on the project can be found on their website.


Offer for the inclusion of questions in the paper-and-pencil questionnaire in the 8th wave of SHARE data collection

Like in all data collection waves, researchers at Czech academic and scientific workplaces are offered the opportunity to include their own questions in the paper-and-pencil SHARE questionnaire. The so-called dropoff is a national questionnaire answered by respondents after their completion of the main questionnaire. The questions in the dropoff should be aimed at topics important for the Czech Republic that are not covered by the international questionnaire. We are happy to provide this service to Czech researchers free of charge and hope that the offer will lead to the analysis of new topics and formulation of data-based domestic policies. Those interested will find more information here.

Testing of data collection for 8th wave of the SHARE project is underway

In July and August 2018, thorough testing is being conducted of the questionnaire and the CAPI computer system for another wave of SHARE data collection in the Czech Republic. We hereby thank all the respondents for their participation and help. The second, final test will take place in June. The 8th wave of data collection itself is planned for January through June 2019.

Preparations made for the 7th wave of data collection of the SHARE project aimed at life history 

The 7th wave of the collection of panel dates (sixth in the Czech Republic) will take place in January through June 2017 on a sample of our existing panel respondents. This wave will be aimed at life history – i.e. information on important events in the lives of individuals in their childhood, adolescence and adulthood, which will make it possible to monitor their later impacts in old age, especially on health, quality of life and socio-economic situation. Because a survey of life history already took place in the third wave in 2008, the respondents who already answered these questions will complete the usual questionnaire. We again expect the participation of external researches in formulating questions for the national paper-and-pencil questionnaire.
