Generations and Gender Survey (GGS)

The GGS is the core component of the Generations and Gender Programme. In the previous round of data collection in 2004 data was collected on over 200,000 individuals aged 18-79 from 19 countries. The micro-data files are freely available to use for researchers.

SHARE - 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). SHARE covers 27 European countries and Israel. The data are available to the entire research community free of charge.

Social Policy and Law Shared Database (SPLASH)

SPLASH offers access to contextual data through the development of two substantive sections: Data and Policy.

The Data section gives access to contextual quantitative indicators based on official statistics and research outcomes. In the Policy section users will gain access to standardised information about policy changes and their legal supporting documents over time; the records have been compiled from the Population and Policy Database (PPD) and the Population Europe Resource Finder and Archive (PERFAR), which was last updated in 2016. In addition, SPLASH will provide access to quantitative and qualitative external sources complementing the contents offered by the two sections.
