29% Pakistanis prefer to stay at home during evenings; 28% say they watch television. GILANI POLL/GALLUP PAKISTAN

Islamabad, Feb 26, 2014


According to a Gilani Research Foundation Survey carried out by Gallup Pakistan, 29% Pakistanis prefer to stay at home during evenings; 28% say they watch television.  

A nationally representative sample of adult men and women, from across the four provinces was asked “What do you generally do in the evenings?” Responding to this, 29% said stay at home, 28% said watch television, 14% said go out with friends and 14% said rest. 6% said engage in a hobby, 5% replied walk and exercise and 1% said other. 3% did not respond.

A breakdown between adult men and women reveals varying results. 26% of men say they stay at home compared to 32% women. 22% of the male respondents said they spend their evenings going out with friends compared to only 3% of women. When it came to watching television, 21% of male respondents said this is how they passed their evenings whereas 39% of the women said they do the same. An analysis of the location showed no major disparity as the activities seem to be consistent in both urban and rural areas.

In July 2009, 40% of the respondents said they stayed at home, 20% said they watched television, 12% said they go out with friends and 11% said rest. 7% replied they engage in a hobby, 6% said walk and exercise and 1% said other. 3% did not respond.
