LONDON — HSBC has published an ranking of the best countries for expats to live, based on its annual expat explorer report.
The report itself was based on an online YouGov survey of nearly 27,587 expats from 159 countries.
The pollster asked expats 27 questions across three subindexes: economics, experience, and family.
The economics league table uses a score that summarises expats views about a country and its expats, covering wage levels, career progression, and the local economy.
The experience league table quizzed expats on the lifestyle they have in their adopted country, covering local culture, safety, ease of forming friendships, and the ease of setting up a new home.
The family league table was based upon expats’ attitudes towards family life in their adopted countries, covering expat social life, education costs, and the ease of children making friends.
The three subindexes were then collated and used to create an overall ranking based on an average score, given out of one.
