Welcome to this interactive Global Survey

on People Migration!

The people migration study is aimed at ascertaining if people move home between National census intervals and why. On this page are the preliminary results. Thank you to all of you who have donated information! If you have yet to take part in this survey using your own life experiences and have been uncertain about the outcome, it is hoped this page is reassuring to you.

Preliminary Results. 21 April, 2008

A total of 37 valid results have been used in the summary. More results than this were received, but  were unusable for a variety of reasons such as duplicate entries or obvious mistakes that were later corrected by the submission of a second input from the participant.

Data has been sent in by respondents from the following Regions.

Australia Canada Europe USA Total

and to give a quick indication of migration, of the respondents so far, the Birth Regions  show, not unexpectedly, the migration trend is from Europe

The survey was constructed in such a way as to identify the pattern of migration, the results to date are shown in Chart 3 that seem to indicate that both Australia and the USA are seen as lands of opportunity!

The ladies are definitely showing the men the way home when it comes to sharing information, and this goes against the global statistics that say more men use the Internet than women! Well done the ladies! Men are also more reticent about sharing their age, I wonder why?

Congratulations to the senior citizens, I am very impressed!
