Islamabad, May 23, 2013
According to a Gilani Research Foundation Survey carried out by Gallup Pakistan, 15% of Pakistanis say they do not have fruit at all.
A nationally representative sample of men and women from across the four provinces was asked “How many days a week do you eat fruit?” Responding to this, 34% said 1-2 days, 31% said 3-4 days, 7% said 7-8 days, 6% said 5-6 days and 15% said they do not eat fruit at all. However, 7% did not give a response.
A comparison between genders shows uniformity, with 34% of men and 33% of women saying they have fruit 1-2 days a week, and 15% of both men and women saying they do not have fruit at all.
Question: “How many days a week do you eat fruit?”
