On Social Justice: Majority of Pakistanis (66%) are inclined to believe that a child born in a poor household in Pakistan cannot become rich no matter how hard he/she works: Survey

Islamabad, February 13, 2019 (PPI-OT): According to a Gilani Research Foundation Survey carried out by Gallup and Gilani Pakistan, majority of Pakistanis (66%) are inclined to believe that a child born in a poor household in Pakistan cannot become rich no matter how hard he/she works.

A nationally representative sample of men and women from across the four provinces was asked, “In our country, if a child born in a poor household works very hard, he/she can become rich. What is your opinion on this?” In response to this question, 66% said it was unlikely, 32% said it was likely, while 2% did not know or did not wish to respond.

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 1142 men and women in rural and urban areas of all four provinces of the country, during 24 January – 28 January, 2019. The error margin is estimated to be approximately ± 2-3 percent at the 95% confidence level.
