3.2% of the world’s population can be considered expatriates, but how much do we really know about this quarter billion? Aiding in our research, by completing our 3-part research programme, can get this significant population better understood.
There are 232 million people living outside of their nation of origin but what do we actually know about them? Immigrant or expat, tax exile or asylum seeker, estimations vary wildly and the knowledge of a population of almost a quarter of a billion has proven shallow. The Expat Survey conducts in-depth research that aims to paint a more accurate and textured picture of a constantly changing landscape and we are calling for your participation!
There is no other independent study that attempts to understand the lifestyles of those who live overseas like The Expat Survey. Emma Wood, project director, explains its ethos:
‘We are dedicated to the interconnectedness of business, client and customer; expat voices are unique but not always the loudest, our research can improve this conversation.’
The Expat Survey is a comprehensive programme that covers every facet of expat life – health to politics, online spending habits to the media engagement which enables expats to stay in contact with ‘home’; and the news content they track around the world.
‘Here, we are concerned with the quality of expatriate life, not just quantifying its facts and figures. The data we collect is never passed on to third parties or government agencies. We are sponsored by a cross-section of business dedicated to expats, from Lebara to International Family Law Group; that don’t have direct access to The Expat Survey’s raw intelligence, but are able to significantly enhance their understanding of the expatriate customers that they serve by consulting with our insights team’ says Wood.
In completing The Expat Survey you have the chance of winning a £2000 cash prize! You also have the chance of improving the businesses that are providing services to you, shaping the expatriate experience by speaking collectively!
‘We have received more than 14,000 responses so far, but need this number to climb by getting as many expatriates as possible to engage in this year’s project. We welcome any nationality from any country and your involvement can make a valuable contribution to others in real terms so we urge you to get involved’.
