The Trend Of Owning And Wearing A Wrist Watch Has Decreased In The Last Ten Years: GILANI POLL/GALLUP PAKISTAN

According to a Gilani Research Foundation survey carried out by Gallup Pakistan, almost half of all Pakistanis (49%) claim to own a wrist watch, most of whom (52%) wears it sometimes. This is a notable change from 10 years back: In 2000, a similar Gallup and Gilani poll had found that 73% of Pakistanis had a wrist watch, most of whom (41%) wore it almost daily.

In two different surveys, a nationally representative sample of men and women from across the country were asked the following question: “Do you own a wrist watch?” In 2010 49% claim that they own a wrist watch as compared to 51% who say that they don’t own one. The comparable figures in response to the same question in 2000 were: 73% said that they have a wrist watch while 27% stated that they don’t.

The findings of the recent survey reveal that relatively more males (56%) claim that they own a wrist watch as compared to the females (41%).

“Do you own a wrist watch?”

In a follow up question, a nationally representative sample of men and women from across the country were asked the following question: “If yes, how often do you wear it?” In 2010 12% say that they wear it almost all the time, 36% claim that they wear the wrist watch almost daily where as 52% wear it sometimes. The comparable figures in response to the same question in 2000 were: 26% stated that they wear it almost all the time, 41% wore the wrist watch almost daily where as 32% wore it sometimes.

A detailed analysis of the recent data also shows that more females (63%) wear the wrist watches sometimes as compared to the males (44%).

“If yes, how often do you wear it?”

The study was released by Gilani foundation and carried out by Gallup Pakistan, the Pakistani affiliate of Gallup International. The recent survey was carried out among a sample of 2710 men and women in rural and urban areas of all four provinces of the country, during September 2010. Error margin is estimated to be approximately + 2-3 per cent at 95% confidence level.

  1. Yes You are right that the trend of wearing wrist watches has decreased from last few years but a person who wears a wrist watch has a different image and show his gravity.
