Moving Specialists Seven Seas Worldwide Launches the 2021 Global Movement Report
NEW YORK and LOS ANGELES, Aug. 3, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Seven Seas Worldwide, global shipping and relocation experts, launched its 2021 Global Movement Report highlighting international relocation trends over the past year. The report, based on a global data survey collected by research provider, Censuswide, found that the most popular relocation destinations for California and New York residents (the two locations in the U.S. that were a part of the survey) are the United Kingdom, Japan and Italy.
The report also sheds light on some broader consumer trends, probing the rationale behind relocation decisions to get a clearer picture of the direction the world is heading and to explore the future of relocation.
California and New York residents share common motivations for relocating internationally – 36% of Californians and 38% of New Yorkers reported relocating in the past six to 18 months for the purposes of moving away from or returning to their country of origin. Other incentives for relocation include better lifestyle, new job opportunities, education, and proximity to loved ones and enhanced cultural experiences.
"Deciding where to live is a big challenge at any time, let alone at a time such as now," says John Henderson, Co-Founder of Seven Seas Worldwide. "The results of our first Global Movement Report will be beneficial to those considering or studying motivations behind internationa relocation."
The Covid-19 pandemic deeply impacted global mobility, posing logistical challenges and complex psychological and emotional considerations. According to the recent survey, 47% of Californians and 54% of New Yorkers had relocation plans cancelled due to Covid-19 and pandemic-related restrictions or concerns.
