This year I introduced a few “financial metrics” - which I marked as optional, in case you don’t feel comfortable sharing.
I understand it is not ideal (especially around definitions of financial metrics), but I tried to keep it as simple as possible, yet with enough detail to provide us some interesting insights.
You will understand that agreeing on a single definition followed by everybody is near impossible.
So I tried to be as explicit as possible around inclusions/exclusions.
Once we get enough responses (e.g. 50+), I will recreate a similar dashboard as earlier, to share the aggregated results (similar to what we had in Mustachians in Switzerland).
Your (optional) username will not be exposed to the community (other than myself - so that we can e.g. trace if you already filled the survey, in case you want to check or resubmit your inputs).
You could also use any other “identifier” not related to your username, if you’re worried.
Special thanks to our fellow user @rolandinho for providing a useful 4-eye review, and @Mr.Paprika for triggering me to recreate this and creating the original poll!
Now go ahead and contribute!
Last time around we ended up with the impressive 190 responses, so I’m hoping we can get there this time too.
P.S. If the mods could pin this for some time, that will help us get to bigger numbers faster.
P.P.S. Please use this thread for any feedback you might have - if early enough we might push it already in this version; otherwise we keep it for v. 2025.
Looking at the previous report, It’s interesting. I expected to see central Switzerland on the top, but it’s surprising that ZH is on the top alone. I guess people living in ZG and SZ are already rich, so they are not pursuing frugal living
It’s amazed me your savings rate. Even if I believe that I am quite frugal (Just realized that I’ve mistake my savings rate in the survey should be around 30% instead of 17%. But your figures are incredible.
I hope that when my small one finish the kita I can go to your level guys
