27% of Pakistanis say the most important day of their life was the day of the birth of their son/daughter. GILANI POLL/GALLUP PAKISTAN


Islamabad, March 25, 2013

According to a Gilani Research Foundation Survey carried out by Gallup Pakistan, 27% of Pakistanis say the most important day of their life was the day of the birth of their son/daughter.

A nationally representative sample of men and women from across the four provinces was asked “Think of the past years, what was the most important day of your life?” Responding to this, 27% said ‘birth of son/daughter’, 26% said ‘wedding day’, 21% said ‘Eid’, 11% said ‘day of Hajj’, 6% said ‘the day I found employment’, 4% said ‘the day you got present from your wife/husband’, 2% said ‘Valentine’s Day’ and 2% said ‘others’. However, 1% did not give a response.

It is interesting to note that the birth of a child is more important to women (31%) than it is to men (24%). The second most important day for women is the day of their wedding (30%), while the second most important day for men is Eid (23%).

Question: “Think of the past years, what was the most important day of your life?”
