The study was conducted in North America, Europe, Asia, South America and Australia, among 7,803 employed adults in September and October 2011. It revealed about who gets how many holidays and how they use them or waste rather and also their view-points towards a holiday trip. The top ten vacation deprived countries among them are as follows:
