A nationally representative sample of adult men and women, from across the four provinces was asked, “In your opinion the distribution of money and wealth in this country today is fair, or do you feel that the money and wealth in this country should be more evenly distributed among a larger percentage of the people?” In response to this question, 30% respondents said the current distribution is fair, whereas 70% said that wealth should be more evenly distributed among a larger percentage of people.

This question was also asked in America, by Gallup USA (not affiliated with Gallup Pakistan) during April 2015. Responding to this question, 31% American respondents said that the current distribution is fair, while 63% said that wealth should be more evenly distributed among a larger percentage of people, and 6% did not have any opinion. Perceptions among both Pakistanis and Americans are quite similar about the distribution of wealth in their countries, with only a difference of 7% in the respondents from both countries who believe wealth should be more evenly distributed.
