World’s largest independent expatriate research programme is now open

What do expats really think about their life abroad? Do they give it the big thumbs up, or regret their decision to leave their country of origin? Last year 80% of expatriates confirmed they have an improved quality of life where they now live. 72% said they enjoy a better climate and scenery, 67% an enhanced work/life balance and 63% a much greater sense of security. With all that is going on in the world, the team at The Expat Survey reviews these and a broad range of other opinions each year; and whether or not they ever intend to return to their homelands.

During 2013 expatriates from all walks of life completed the research study including high net worth individuals, business executives, career movers, international students, economic and war zone migrants. Zooming in on highlights from last year’s programme and focussing on current affairs and trends, there’s something everyone. New topics for the 2014 include education and studying abroad, politics and voting rights, changes in attitude towards investments, life’s little luxuries, fashion and lifestyle; as well as mental, physical and spiritual health.

Many expatriates are overseas due to the nature of their work and so the programme is very interested in hearing from those that have relocated in pursuit of better opportunities for themselves and their families. Maybe they work for the oil and gas, utilities and mining sector or financial, technology or hospitality industries. No matter what their background is and where they are now their opinions are of equal importance to the project.

Specialising in the communication and consumption habits of those on the move and how human beings qualify their own personal identities, the i-World research unit is independent (it genuinely engages with expatriates organically and is not owned or its contents influenced by a media company or Corporate) and has more than 25 years experience in analysing international markets. It really wants to hear from expatriates over 18 years that are currently living outside their country of origin for more than 6 months in any one year; on either a temporary or permanent basis. Whether they are a business owner, employee, full time parent, student, retiree or any other status their contribution is very important. Those that complete all three questionnaires are automatically entered into a series of prize draws with £1,000 cash, Amazon vouchers and Lebara SIM Cards to be won. Expats can also opt to join their growing international focus group.

The Expat Survey is the largest and most in-depth annual online research programme of its kind (it is also available by post, simply text name and address to +44 (0) 7792 045121).  In 2013 expatriates of 89 nationalities responded from 125 countries to a total of 152 questions, producing the most comprehensive multi-topic profiles on their lives abroad. Comprising three questionnaires – Migration & Lifestyle, Retail & Finance and Travel & Health, the first part of their 2014 research programme is now live at www.theexpatsurvey.com

With no links to Governments and no personal details shared, the team hopes expatriate from all over the world will feel welcome to engage, express their views and share their adventures and experiences.

Expatriate votes needed too! The Expat Survey Consumer Awards (TESCA)

Servicing those that live overseas is often complex and requires a lot of dedication. Producing daily, weekly and monthly publications or delivering good quality customer care to somebody on the other side of the world, is challenging and requires significant skill and commitment. Importantly the information they supply or the care they provide, can be essential in the day to day lives of those living outside their country of origin.

The Expat Survey Consumer Awards have been launched to give expatriates the opportunity to nominate and commend the work of media owners and service providers that do an amazing job of adding value to the lives of expatriates, no matter who or where they are.

The Expat Survey 2014 is now live!

Do you give your life abroad the big thumbs up? Last year 80% of expatriates confirmed they have an improved quality of life where they now live. 72% said they enjoy better climate and scenery, 67% an enhanced work/life balance and 63% a much greater sense of security. With all that is going on in the world, the team at The Expat Survey would like to know if these and other opinions have changed at all; and do you ever intend to return to your country of origin.

Zooming in on highlights from last year’s programme and focussing on current affairs and trends, there’s something for everyone. New topics for this year include education and studying abroad, politics and voting rights, changes in attitude towards investments, life’s little luxuries, fashion and lifestyle; as well as mental, physical and spiritual health.

The research team really wants to hear from you if you are living outside your homeland for more than 6 months in any one year; on either a temporary or permanent basis. Whether you are a business owner, employee, full time parent, student, retiree or any other status your contribution is important. Those that complete all three questionnaires are automatically entered into a series of prize draws with £1,000 cash, Amazon vouchers and Lebara SIM Cards to be won.

About The Expat Survey 2014

In a world of rapid change amidst globalisation, volatile economies and the tech revolution, with the diversification and consolidation of businesses resulting in employment instability and mounting stress, as well as conflict over natural resources and power struggles displacing native populations; many have moved abroad in the belief that the grass is greener on the other side, but is it?

The aim of the project is to establish the answer to this question and more, to understand migratory patterns and causes; and gain a true understanding of expatriate life across all nationalities and territories…

The Expat Survey programme has been launched to gain a much better insight into the needs of those living outside their country of origin and to specifically understand what is relevant and helpful to expatriates within each country, and what isn’t. Whilst there are questions that simply require tick boxes to be completed, the programme breaks away from convention and asks optional questions about your relocation experience, whether or not expectations have been fulfilled, what expats miss about home, and requests tips and advice for others contemplating a move to a new continent.
