46% of expatriates around the world have children of their own but only 21% are currently raising their children abroad, according to expat networking group InterNations.

The group conducted a survey of 3,000 families who live and work abroad and found that some countries are significantly more friendly towards new families than others.

Switzerland, Russia, and Austria ranked as the least friendly countries towards families.

Uganda "Every single parent rates the friendliness of the local population towards children positively, and 68% are even completely satisfied with the warm attitude towards families," said InterNations.
