Islamabad, Jun 13, 2013
According to a Gilani Research Foundation Survey carried out by Gallup Pakistan, 21% of Pakistanis wake up with an alarm clock.
A nationally representative sample of men and women from across the four provinces was asked “Kindly tell us, do you use an alarm to wake up, or does someone from your household wake you up or do you wake up on your own?” Responding to this, 21% said they wake up with an alarm, 26% said someone from the household wakes them up and 52% said they wake up on their own. However, 1% did not give a response.
Comparing answers between rural and urban respondents shows interesting results. More urban respondents said they use an alarm to wake up (28%) compared with rural respondents (18%). On the other hand, more rural respondents said they wake up on their own (52%) compared with urban respondents (42%).
Question: “Kindly tell us, do you use an alarm to wake up, or does someone from your household wake you up or do you wake up on your own?”
