The chapter describes the Survey of Health, Ageing and Retirement in Europe (SHARE). SHARE has been designed to monitor, document and analyse the complexities of individual and societal ageing processes with a special emphasis on the interplay among the triangular connections of health, social embeddedness and the socio-economic status of older individuals. While the benefits of comparative international research have become clear, the conduct of such research poses a number of challenges, such as the development of designs that can be readily adapted to different social and cultural settings, the harmonization of concepts and measures that provide a reasonably acceptable level of cross-national comparability, and the coordination of data collection and analysis across countries. SHARE has led this effort across its large number of participating countries, and spearheaded the inclusion of objective health measures in an international survey.
