Indicators were developed which made it possible to thoroughly analyse the SHARE database and compare its findings with data from other surveys.The project uses advanced multivariate analysis to better understand ageing, health and retirement using the new data collected in SHARE and its older sister surveys ELSA and HRS. Main aim of these analyses is to develop policy tools in the field of ageing. Specifically, statistical and econometric analyses of individual behavioural responses to public policies influencing active and healthy ageing, health care services utilisation, retirement, and social participation. Based on the results, indicators were developed for key concepts relevant to EU policy.
