Differences between the Asia Pacific countries

Kim Walker’s company has conducted, what must be the largest online poll of the 50-plus in the six key countries of Asia Pacific. The research was done between late December and the first week in Jan 2009. We are talking big numbers – a poll of over 170,000 people.

The above chart shows how the respondents in different countries vary to question about rewarding themselves for the years of hard work providing for others.

The older age groups in all of the countries intend to reward themselves (code for spending money) but just look at the country differences. Not surprising the 50-plus in Australia are way out in the lead in their intentions to reap the rewards of their hard work.

It is definitely worth downloading Kim’s research report. Dick Stroud
