Download the Harmonized SHARE End of Life Stata Creation Code.

To run the Harmonized SHARE End of Life Creation Code in Stata:

  • From SHARE Research Data Center, download the 7.0.0 release Stata data for Waves 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6. Download the All Waves Coverscreen Release 7.0.0 for Stata.
  • Make sure you have already created the Harmonized SHARE version D.5. For information on creating the Harmonized SHARE visit: https://g2aging.org/?section=page&pageid=22.
  • Edit line 13 of the Stata Creation Code to list the folder location of SHARE data for all waves, the all waves coverscreen data, and the Harmonized SHARE data. Edit line 14 to list the folder location where you would like to save the Harmonized SHARE End of Life dataset. 

If you would prefer to work with the Harmonized SHARE End of Life dataset in a statistical package other than Stata, you can convert the Harmonized SHARE End of Life Stata dataset using a program such as Stat/Transfer. If you do not have access to Stat/Transfer, you may be able to read the .dta dataset into your stat package using an “import” or “get” function. When reading a .dta dataset into another package, it is best to first save the dataset in a Stata version 12 format using the command saveold.
