Summary/Abstract: Demographically, Europe is getting older. According to EPRS data published in 2019 and a comparison of the population structure in 2001 and 2017, an increase in the population over 45 is visible, which indicates an almost increase in pension beneficiaries. This paper aims to analyze aging and retirement differences between European countries from the SHARE data (Survey of Health, Ageing, and Retirement in Europe) project. The analysis will use secondary data from the SHARE project collected from interviews in 26 European countries, conducted in 7 waves from 2004 to 2017. The focus of this research will be on Wave 7. Data will be analyzed via IBM SPSS 23.0, using univariate and bivariate statistical analysis methods. Based on the analysis, it will be possible to compare the perception of the elderly population of the European countries, based on which it can be concluded which country is coping well with the aging of its population. The authors suggest further similar research of the same type in the Republic of Croatia.
