What are your aspirations for 2019?

January 22nd, 2019

A while back we asked our panel members what they hope will happen within the next year. It turns out the majority wants to get well or become rich.

Some people may dream of buying a house, finish their degree or move to another country within the next year. There are just as many dreams as there are people on this planet, thus to narrow it down we gave our panel members the options below when we asked them: “Which of the following are you hoping for within the next year?”

  • Becoming rich
  • Getting married
  • Getting a (new) job
  • Getting promoted
  • Getting well
  • Having a baby
  • Finding love
  • Other
  • None of the above

41 percent of the Finnish panel members have chosen the option “Getting well”, whereas the same option is chosen by between 13 percent (Denmark) and 20 percent (Norway) in the remaining countries. Looking at the total score of the category it is therefore the most popular one. On a second place we find “Becoming rich”, which is especially popular among the Norwegian panel members and chosen by 20 percent of them. “Getting a new job” takes third place, closely followed by “Finding love”, which almost an equal amount in each panel is hoping for.

“Having a baby” has only been chosen by between 2 and 5 percent, except among the Swedish panel members. In Sweden 20 percent are hoping they will have a baby within the next year. When it comes to the category “Getting married”, however, the panel members all agree that that is not a top priority and the category has only been chosen by between 2 and 4 percent in all participating countries.

At Userneeds we hope all your dreams and aspirations for 2019 will come true!
