Qatar has fallen seven spots in an annual survey that asks expats to assess their quality of life in different countries.
However, the survey has added several new countries to the index this year, and Qatar’s actual score has not changed much since 2015, the report’s authors said.
This year, expats here continue to express concerns about the rising cost of living and instability in the country’s job market.
To arrive at its findings, HSBC surveyed almost 27,000 expats living in 190 different countries in March and April this year. Some 500 of these respondents were from Qatar.
The report presented overall rankings, as well as three separate tables based on economic concerns, what it’s like to live in each country and quality of family life.
