The Expat Survey 2014 programme has been launched to gain 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.
With more than 220 million expatriates worldwide, the dynamics of migration and integration into new habitats and cultures have never been more complex.
Reaching an audience of more than 10 million, this research programme is the largest of its kind ever undertaken. Almost 100 off and online media owners from around the world have united behind ‘The Expat Survey’ to publicise it; and several companies specialising in servicing expatriates have committed as collaborative partners to promote it.
