  • Abstract:
    The Survey of Health, Ageing and Retirement in Europe (SHARE) is a multidisciplinary and cross-national panel database of micro data on health, socio-economic status and social and family networks of about 140,000 individuals aged 50 or older (around 380,000 interviews).
    The subject of this pretest are questions that were newly developed for the 9th wave of SHARE. The questions are about financial decision making, successful aging, eating habits, long-term care insurance and expectations of long-term care.
    They were tested via face-to-face cognitive interviews.

    *Note: The items were tested in German. The items documented here are English translations of the original German wordings.*
