  3. I am not an Englishman, I'm an Australian interested in the experiences of Australian immigrants. Presently, my honours thesis revolves around examining cultural adaption, religiosity and mental health in Australian immigrants (i.e. international students, immigrants in Australia or Australians born to immigrant parents). In order to gather data I am using a survey, which takes 10 minutes to complete and is anonymous, which asks about an individuals experiences in Australia, their religious beliefs and practices, and their mental health regarding depression, anxiety and stress. Given that this board is centred around Australian immigrants, I believe it is a reasonable place to post my survey. If anyone is willing, I would very much appreciate it if you could please complete my thesis survey using the following link: https://rmit.au1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_0JJkpqRcgj3FIKF. All responses are very much appreciated, and I hope to expand on the current understanding of immigrant experiences and mental health in Australia. You can also share the survey with anyone you believe might be interested in doing it if you wish.

    ABS Surveys

    We just had a lady knock on our door from the ABS on a Saturday morning asking us to participate in a health survey. She also mentioned about taking our blood pressure and measurements. We also had a guy from the ABS a few weeks ago wake us up on a Sunday morning about a survey (guessing it was the same survey). On both occasions we told them it wasn't a convenient time (on the Sunday morning he had woken us up and today we were in the middle of chores and I was writing a university assignment) and today the lady couldn't really give us any information about if we had to comply etc. Has anybody else had this happen? I just did a google search and it came up with all kinds of complaints. Do you know if we have to do the survey as we're not citizens? I guess if we have to we will do it I'm just slightly uneasy about providing this information especially my blood pressure and also in our spare time which we don't seem to get a lot of at the moment!

  6. [WRAP]http://www.pomsinoz.com/images/kangaroo1.jpg[/WRAP]Australia remains the top destination for would be British Expats looking for a new life abroad. A survey by Post Office International Payments showed that 27% of respondents have considered a move overseas, with a further 20% saying they remain open to the idea. Australia is the most tempting destination – a fifth of people (21%) say they would most like to live or work there, followed by the United States of America (18%) and Canada (14%). Spain came in fourth place with 10%. Sarah Munro from Post Office International Payments said: "Living and working overseas is a tempting thought, with many people considering a move abroad at some point. However, taking the plunge is a big emotional and financial upheaval, and it isn't surprising that the worry of leaving family and friends is the main barrier. "For those looking to live or work overseas, the average amount of time people expect to stay is about seven years, giving them plenty of time to immerse themselves fully in the culture and enjoy a different way of living." Interestingly, for retirees the language barrier does not seem such an issue, with Spain being voted the most appealing place to retire for British expats, closely followed by Australia, the USA, France and Ireland. Research by the Post Office also found 27% of 18-34 year olds would move overseas if it would improve their career prospects. Meanwhile, one in five have already lived or worked outside of the UK and 39% listed better job opportunities as their main motivation for doing so. Sarah Munro from the Post Office said: "The combination of financial constraints and a difficult job market is making a move overseas look more and more attractive for young people from the UK." Working abroad was deemed one way to ride out the effects of the current economic climate by 12 per cent of respondents, with those willing to relocate saying they would stay away for at least five years. For nearly a quarter (23 per cent) of young people, moving overseas is seen as a way of combining their desire to go travelling with working and getting paid. Elsewhere, opportunities for promotion were listed by 19 per cent of those eager to relocate. An improved quality of living was the top reason for wanting to escape the UK job and housing market with 63 per cent, while the prospect of a higher salary came second with 43 per cent of the votes. The results of the survey come after the Money Advice Trust revealed research has found nearly one million 16-24 year olds are currently unemployed in the UK.

    DIAC Client Experience Survey

    Just noticed that DIAC published the results of their client satisfaction survey. Client Experience Program 2009-10 Phase 1 Result Not surprisingly the summary details all the good scores. Plus this appeared to be based on questions as to how your dealings were (did you get through OK and get an answer) with the dept rather than the actual issues with all the changes - and I would probably have answer positively to many questions even at my most frustrated with the system. I followed the link to a fuller document although still a summary Client Experience Program 2009-10 Summary includes for the likes of us waiting "35 per cent of clients with immigration status issues were satisfied with their overall dealings with the department. Aspects of service that these respondents were least satisfied with included information on the timeframe for deciding on applications, the speed of response to email enquiries and aspects of client service during in-person visits and telephone calls."

    DIAC client experince survey

    Just wondered if anyone else was emailed and asked to complete the above survey? I was and although I was apparently randomly selected I did wonder how many in the ever lengthening queue were surveyed. I answered it honestly but tbh when you factually answer the Q's in terms of my timeline, response to emails from my CO etc it looked like a bit of a glowing report. Yet I know all too well that was sheer luck rather than good management as comparatively I could/would be in cat 4 now and having a long long unclear wait ahead. I put lots of 'info' under the 'other' sections to clarify where I think they have treated people badly in terms of rule changes and communication but tbh I can almost see now in a few months time these survey results will reveal DIAC are doing a cracking job according to their clients and they'll give thmselves a good pat on the back for it :realmad: Did anyone caught up in the mess of the last 18months get asked I wonder?

    State Sponsor Survey. Let Us Know

    Hello All. In response to VickyMel's query regarding the split in State Sponsor applications. I've set up a poll for those who have applied and have received their answer. So if you've been either approved or rejected, feel free to participate, and hopefully we can create a picture of who's going where and what states want who. The survey is based on state and occupation base. With the questions, 1. Which State do you currently have sponsorship from? and 2. Have you been rejected for sponsorship? Due to the range of occupations available I've generalised them, If it's easier my train of thought when devising the categories are as follows; Trades: Hairdressers, Cooks, Telecommunication Lines-person, Welders, etc Construction Trades: Chippies, Bricklayers, Sparks, Plumbers etc Engineers: Chemical, Mechanical, Civil, Electrical, Architect etc, Medical: Nurses, Midwives, Dentists etc, IT: Computer Professionals, .net, network security etc Professionals: Accountants, Graphic Designers, Solicitors, etc Other: Social Workers, Biologists, or any occupation that doesn't fit in above. There's an option to type in your occupation under other. Link removed, please read below. Update: 08/03/10 Hello. Here's some of the results as of today. There's been a total of 101 participants so far. I've attached a PDF with the results for everyone to check out for themselves. I'm afraid the survey may have reached the end of it's life. The service I was using was free, with the option of upgrading to a pro package. Unknown to myself the limitation of the free survey was the restriction of showing results for 100 participants only. Still, we may be able to take the results as a proportion of who's going where and to work as what. Thanks to everyone for taking the time to contribute. The new and updated results have been included below. Cheers.

    UK Salary Survey

    Am just curious (and maybe a little jealous!) of the folk who have made multiple reccie visits, have what seems like a fortune in cash to transfer, or are planning to ship over what I consider to be prestige cars when they make the move. In my case the tax man tells me I earn well over double the national average in an IT job, but I live in what I consider a modest house and both me and my partner drive at least 10 year old cars. We have one child and live comfortably with the mortgage as the only debt. Have you guys with the cash and assets just lived more frugally? Or have the taxman and my employer been fibbing about my relative wealth. :goofy: Note this is a private poll - no one will see who voted what!

    Survey of migrant adjustment

    Dear Brit in Oz, I am a researcher at the University of New England, New South Wales, and at present I am conducting research into migrant adjustment in Australia. Migrants make up around one quarter of the population in Australia, and its very important that we understand what helps them to successfully adjust to life in Australia. I am asking people who are migrants to Australia, over the age of 18, to complete a questionnaire. Your participation will be entirely anonymous, and no individual data will be reported. Your responses will help us to understand and explain which problems people living abroad have to face, and what helps them. The questionnaire takes around 20 minutes to complete. HOW TO PARTICIPATE Please go to the following website and follow the instructions from there: http://migrantsurvey.speedsurvey.com Yours sincerely, Sue Watt, PhD University of New England
  16. AUSTRALIA may think the world of itself but the world does not think as much of it, at least not when it comes to a business environment, culture and social welfare, says a poll of citizens of the eight largest economies. Foreigners rated Australia for its world-class lifestyle but marked it down as a place to do business, the quality of its products and services, its government and its contribution to the global economy, a survey by a think tank, the Reputation Institute, found.
  17. Hello everyone at PomsInOz.com I'm posting on behalf of Marks & Spencer. As part of the introduction of the M&S International Delivery service, we're currently running a survey exclusively for British expats about the things they miss most when living away from the UK. It takes less than 5 minutes and all respondents can enter into the draw to win a £250 M&S gift card to spend through the new delivery service! For more information and to participate in the survey simply visitwww.marksandspencer.com/homeandabroad The M&S International Delivery service - www.marksandspencer.com/internationaldelivery- means that, for the first time, British expats can order Marks & Spencer clothes, lingerie as well as selected beauty and home accessories and have them delivered to Australia. Thanks!

    Agent Satisfaction Survey

    Hi All On Friday the Minister for Immi published a report dealing with the future of the migration advice profession/industry (depending on the optimism of one's view of what constitutes a 'profession'.) The details are here: Migration Advice Industry in Australia Mostly it is very boring and not worth trudging through (speaking as a survivor of the trudge.) However it set me wondering about consumer satisfaction levels with the services provided by migration agents and so I'd be interested to see what sort of results a poll might produce. Many thanks Gill

    UK house survey.

    Our house went on the market last week. First viewer put an offer in 2.5k less of the asking price she said she really liked the house. Was already to except her offer when we got another viewing last night. Couple looked really keen, been back again today for another viewing with there pencil and pad. Asked so many questions especially about the roof (looks like there is a few tiles missing), inspected all the carpets, fitted wardrobes, light fittings and still haven't put an offer in. They said they will let us know tomorrow. The first viewer didn't ask this many questions I think if they do put an offer in and we accept they will have the top survey done on the house. Has anyone had this kind of survey done on there house, what does it entail. My house is not a new house built in the 1960'S. If any thing is pulled up do we have to put it right before the sale of the house, or do they knock it of the price of the house. :? One more question my friends dad is an electrician who fitted a new fuse board for us but his not registered. Do the solicitors ask now about electrical work in the house like they do for the double glazing. :?: Sorry to go on it just seems i'm worrying about every think at the moment and it's not like me, and the hard stuff hasn't even begun yet.
