How do expats perceive living and working in Denmark? And what could make them stay longer? These are some of the key questions examined in “The Expat Study 2020” carried out by Oxford Research.

The Expat 2020 Study explores the state of the expat agenda and can be considered as a temperature-taking exercise examining how expats perceive living and working in Denmark in 2020. It combines data from a survey conducted among 1,954 expatriates who live and work in Denmark with registry data from Statistics Denmark.

The 2020 Expat Study is the fifth such study conducted by Oxford Research, following on from those in 1998, 2006, 2010 and 2014. This allows stakeholders to assess how the attraction and retention of expats has progressed since previous studies. It also provides important background knowledge about potential areas for improvement regarding the attraction and retention of expats.

The Expat Study 2020 is conducted by Oxford Research and financed by a group of sponsors. In alphabetical order, these are:

  • Copenhagen Capacity.
  • Confederation of Danish Industry (Dansk Industri).
  • The Danish Agency for International Recruitment and Integration (SIRI).
  • The Danish Confederation of Professional Associations (Akademikerne).
  • The Danish Society of Engineers (IDA).
