Since 2011, prices of sacrificial animals for Eid have been rising every year.

Islamabad, November 10, 2014

According to a Gilani Research Foundation Survey carried out by Gallup Pakistan, 69% Pakistanis think that the prices of sacrificial animals were higher than last year; 9% believe they were lower. 

A nationally representative sample of adult men and women, from across the four provinces was asked, “Do you think that this year the sacrificial animals were more expensive than last year, were less expensive than last year, or were there no differences in prices?” In response, 69% respondents said that the prices of sacrificial animals were higher than last year, 9% said they were lower than last year, while 21% said there was no difference and 1% did not reply.

This question was also asked from 2011 to 2013. In 2013, 73% respondents said that the prices were higher than last year, 6% said prices were lower than last year, while 18% thought there was no difference in prices and 3% did not respond. In 2012, 74% respondents said that the prices were higher than last year, 11% said prices were lower than last year, while 13% thought there was no difference in prices and 2% did not respond. In 2011, 36% respondents said that the prices were higher than last year, 59% said prices were lower than last year, and 5% did not respond. Since 2011, when a majority of respondents believed that prices of sacrificial animals were lower than they had been in the last year, most Pakistanis continue to think that prices of sacrificial animals for Eid are rising every year.
