The Expat Survey is the largest and most extensive research program of any nationality residing abroad. It gathers intelligence on lifestyle, media engagement and consumer behaviour; and what influences and informs their decision making.

Segments involved in the research include contract and migrant workers, high net worth individuals, lifestyle retirees, post graduate trainees and students.

An expatriate (sometimes shortened to expat): is a person temporarily or permanently residing in a country other than that of the person’s upbringing. The word comes from the Latin terms ‘ex’ (out of) and ‘patria’ (country, fatherland).

1)  to banish (a person) from his and her native country

About Us is the largest ‘independent’ annual research programme of those living outside their country of origin; and is a leading authority on what, when, why and how expatriates communicate and consume. Conducted online and by post, the study is based on three extensive surveys – ‘Migration & Lifestyle’, ‘Retail & Finance’ and ‘Travel & Health’ comprising more than 150 questions including invitations for expatriates to contribute open ended responses. In addition the team communicates with expatriates of many nationalities on the ground in more than 125 countries. The Expat Survey is owned and run by a team of qualified management, research and marketing consultants with more than 25 years’ experience on the expatriate segment. It is our objective to function as a proactive research hub occupying a neutral position between media owners, companies servicing expatriates and of course those that reside outside their fatherland for more than 6 months in any 12 month period. Our research unit is not tied to any one company or owned by any one media vehicle, it prides itself in collaborating with as many providers that service expatriates as possible, in order to raise the profile of the sector as a whole.
