Majority of Pakistanis (64%) think a person’s lifestyle and way of thinking should change with passage of time. GILANI POLL/GALLUP PAKISTAN


Islamabad, Jun 10, 2013

According to a Gilani Research Foundation Survey carried out by Gallup Pakistan, majority of Pakistanis (64%) think a person’s lifestyle and way of thinking should change with passage of time.

A nationally representative sample of men and women from across the four provinces was asked “Some people are of the opinion that a person should change his lifestyle and way of thinking with the passage of time, while some people think that a person should maintain his lifestyle and way of thinking regardless of passage of time. What is your opinion on this?” Responding to this, 64% said lifestyle and way of thinking should change with time and 33% said lifestyle and way of thinking should not change with time. However, 3% did not give a response. 

Comparing between men and women, more women (68%) are open to changing their lifestyle and way of thinking with the passage of time than men (61%). Similarly, more rural respondents are open to changing their lifestyles and way of thinking (66%) when compared with their urban counterparts (59%). A comparison between age groups shows that elders (50+ years old) are more inclined to the idea of changing lifestyle (67%) and habits with passage of time than middle aged people (30-50 years old) and the youth (under 30 years old), 61% and 65% respectively. This question was also asked in February 2008, the results of which showed that then 51% of people were of the opinion that lifestyle and way of thinking should change with passage of time. 

Question: “Some people are of the opinion that a person should change his lifestyle and way of thinking with the passage of time, while some people think that a person should maintain his lifestyle and way of thinking regardless of passage of time. What is your opinion on this?”
