Corruption: 75% Pakistanis think corruption is somewhat or extremely problematic for Pakistan: Survey

Islamabad, June 18, 2019 (PPI-OT): According to a Gilani Research Foundation Survey carried out by Gallup and Gilani Pakistan, a significant majority of Pakistanis (75%) think corruption is somewhat or extremely problematic for Pakistan.

 

A nationally representative sample of men and women from across the four provinces was asked, “Using a scale of 1-5, 1 meaning not problematic at all and 5 meaning extremely problematic, please tell us how much of a problem you think corruption is for Pakistan?” In response, 1% said it is not problematic at all, 5% said it is somewhat unproblematic, 18% said it is neither problematic nor unproblematic, 18% said it is somewhat problematic, and 57% said it is extremely problematic. Only 1% said they did not know or wish to respond.

 

Question: “Using a scale of 1-5, 1 meaning not problematic at all and 5 meaning extremely problematic, please tell us how much of a problem you think corruption is for Pakistan?”

 

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 1,480 men and women in urban and rural areas of all four provinces of the country, during April 21-April 30, 2019. The error margin is estimated to be approximately ± 2-3 percent at the 95% confidence level.
