The least likely to complain were the people of Taiwan with just 1% saying they had made a customer service complaint in the last year, followed by Saudi Arabia 3%, China 4%, Poland 5% and Russia with 6%.

The researchers, NOP World interviewed more than 30,000 customers in 30 different countries, asking a cross section of customers if they had made a customer service complaint against a company or organization in the last year.

The research also found that across the world those who make customer service complaints tend to be wealthier and better educated. This is probably because they consume more, they know what they want, and they aren’t prepared to settle for second rate service.
