Public confidence waning in Pakistan’s progress since 1947.

Islamabad, September 30, 2014

According to a Gilani Research Foundation Survey carried out by Gallup Pakistan, 63% Pakistanis believe that Pakistan is in a better condition than it was in 1947; 37% disagree. 
       
A nationally representative sample of adult men and women, from across the four provinces was asked, “Some people think that Pakistan has not progressed much in the past 50 years, while others disagree with this. Do you think Pakistan’s condition was better in 1947 or is it better now?” In response to this question, 63% respondents said that Pakistan’s conditions were better now than they had been in 1947 while 37% said that conditions were better in 1947. Data from previous years indicates a sharp decline in the public’s positive perception of Pakistan’s progress between the years 2010 to 2012 before rising slightly in 2013. Recent trend analysis over similar topics have also indicated a fall in nationalistic fervor and optimism about the country between the years 2010 to 2012. 

Question: “Some people think that Pakistan has not progressed much in the past 50 years, while others disagree with this. Do you think Pakistan’s condition was better in 1947 or is it better now?”

Following up, respondents were further asked, “And tell us about your province, were conditions in your province better in 1947 or are they better now?” Responding to this question, 64% respondents said conditions in their province are better now while 35% said they were better in 1947 and 1% did not respond.
Question: “And tell us about your province, were conditions in your province better in 1947 or are they better now?”
