CURRENT RESEARCH PROJECTS

Survey of Health, Ageing and Retirement in Europe

Väestöliitto coordinates Survey of Health, Ageing and Retirement in Europe (SHARE) in Finland. It studies Europeans that are over 50 years of age and their spouses. SHARE encompasses the social, ecomic and health aspects of life by interviewing the same people every second years. SHARE and its global network of sister studies comprise the best resource for the multdisciplinary research on population and indiviual ageing in the world.

LoveAge

LoveAge investigates couple and social relations among older adults (aged 50+) in Finland and the European Union. We apply a life course and life history perspective and study the elderly as both receivers and providers of different kinds of support. We are interested in how partnership dynamics affect family relations and social networks.
