Islamabad, May 22, 2013
According to a Gilani Research Foundation Survey carried out by Gallup Pakistan, 12% of Pakistanis say they eat vegetables every day of the week.
A nationally representative sample of men and women from across the four provinces was asked “How many days a week do you eat vegetables?” Responding to this, 36% said 3-4 days, 23% said 5-6 days, 13% said1-2 days, 12% said 7-8 days and 4% said they don’t eat vegetables. However, 12% did not give a response.
A comparison between rural and urban localities shows that more respondents from rural areas (15%) eat vegetables daily as compared to urban areas (7%). There was not much difference between the results of men and women, with 13% of men saying they eat vegetables daily and 11% of women saying they eat vegetables daily.
Question: “How many days a week do you eat vegetables?”
