FIRE Survey 2021 - methodology
Next: Introduction

Methodology

This report is based on a survey of 1,298 Firebugs from 21 countries around the world.

  • The survey was fielded from February 8th to March 15th 2021.
  • Unfortunately, there wasn't a timed component in the dataset which means I could not qualify responses. Google forms don't have timed settings. I might look into new software next year
  • Respondents were recruited primarily through channels owned/ran by aussiefirebug.com which included: Aussie FIRE Discussion Facebook group, Aussie Firebug Twitter Account and Aussie Firebug Blog
  • All income figures are based on AUD. I'll add a note to next years survey to make sure international submissions know this
  • Net worth figures are in AUD
  • Some visuals do not always take into consideration all the answers due to visual issues. There were 86 distinct values for banks for example. Reducing that to a top 10 is more visually appealing. You can always download the entire dataset if you want to know all the submissions
