53% Pakistanis say they are satisfied (very/somewhat) with their current standard of life; 14% say otherwise: Survey

Islamabad, November 08, 2017 (PPI-OT):According to a Gilani Research Foundation Survey carried out by Gallup and Gilani Pakistan, 53% Pakistanis say they are satisfied (very/somewhat) with their current standard of life; 14% say otherwise.

A nationally representative sample of men and women from across the four provinces was asked “How satisfied are you with your current standard of life (that is your ability to do what you want or buy what you want)?” In response to this question, 14% said they were very satisfied with their standard of life, 39% said somewhat satisfied, 32% said neither satisfied nor dissatisfied, 11% said somewhat dissatisfied, 3% said very dissatisfied and 1% did not wish to respond.

Bilal I Gilani, Executive Director at Gallup and Gilani Pakistan adds: “Satisfaction with life / living standards is increasingly considered an important indicator of well-being and in some cases a better predictor than income and other economic indicators such as GDP per capita or unemployment rate. It is in this context that Gallup has been tracking satisfaction with life related questions for over 37 years.

The study was released by Gilani Research Foundation and carried out by Gallup and Gilani Pakistan, the Pakistani affiliate of Gallup International. The recent survey was carried out among a sample of 1752 men and women in rural and urban areas of all four provinces of the country, September 25 – 01 October, 2017. Error margin is estimated to be approximately ± 2-3 per cent at 95% confidence level.
