Islamabad: According to a Gilani Research Foundation Survey carried out by Gallup Pakistan, 56% of Pakistanis would support the decision of a small fee being introduced to enter a park.

A nationally representative sample of men and women from across the four provinces was asked “Suppose that a small fee is introduced to enter the park, would you support or oppose this?” Responding to this, 56% said they would support this and 43% said they would oppose this. However, 1% did not give a response.

It is interesting to note that more respondents from rural areas (63%) would support the decision to introduce a small fee to enter a park than respondents from urban areas (42%).

The study was released by Gilani foundation and carried out by Gallup Pakistan, the Pakistani affiliate of Gallup International.

The recent survey was carried out among a sample of 2710 men and women in rural and urban areas of all four provinces of the country, during March 11, 2013 – March 18, 2013. Error margin is estimated to be approximately ± 2-3 per cent at 95% confidence level.
