I guess it's no wonder I've known so many Filipinos in my life, given that the three countries I have spent the most amount of time in before include #1 and #2 on this list. And the third country is the Philippines.

Most of the 207,000 in China are in Hong Kong. I think only 13,000 live in mainland China. I found stats and added up the numbers since the source I had only listed Hong Kong.

I was lecturing at a university there. I left two years ago and have only been back for a 3 months stint since then.

Argh. So close. Only Kuwait was missing. A bit of a surprise not to see Spain here.

Spain has about 33,000. Pretty decent number but not on par with the figures seen in these other countries. You can see the whole report here

There's actually a pretty steep drop-off after Italy. Closest country not on the quiz is Taiwan with about 85k, and then Bahrain and Sri Lanka with about 67k each. Germany is the next highest in Europe.

I've updated this with new information from Wikipedia. I'm not sure if it's more or less accurate than what I had before, but there were some pretty big shifts which I noted in the hints. Spain and Taiwan both make the cut, now, having received some of the biggest increases, while in most of the rest of the world the number of Filipino expats seems to be falling- returning home or moving to the USA from the looks of it.

About 4-5 years on average. The Wikipedia data was inconsistent. Really it's just the change vs the original version of the quiz. Maybe I should take that column out.
