ROME — The world’s largest expat survey has been launched this week, offering participants the chance to win £1,000 in cash. Led by the ex-head of research for BBC World, the questionnaire is the largest independent research study ever undertaken on migration and expatriate life.
It is does not divulge information to third parties and is not tied to any government organizations.
The survey is promoted, but not sponsored, by almost 100 publishers and companies around the world including international accountancy firm Chantrey Vellacott DFK. The questionnaire invites expatriates of any nationality to share their opinions of a variety of topics, including their views on the advantages and disadvantages of living abroad. Information divulged is used to broaden the understanding of organizations and companies that specialize in servicing expatriate communities and individuals. Conducted as an annual rolling programme, the survey comprises three parts.
The first section, “Migration and Lifestyle”, began on July 15, while “Retail and Finance” starts on September 10 and “Travel and Health” will commence on November 3. All surveys will remain live until December 31. Those that complete all three sections stand a chance of winning the prize draw, which can also be donated to charity.
