Survey: (Men continue to dominate responsibility for households’ banking matters: Survey)

ISLAMABAD: According to a Gilani Research Foundation Survey carried out by Gallup Pakistan, 81% Pakistanis said that men are responsible for taking cash to and from the bank in their household; only 7% said women are responsible.

A nationally representative sample of adult men and women, from across the four provinces was asked, “I will read out to you a list of different actions. In some households, in different parts of the country, men do these chores while in others women do.

In your household, who usually carries out these chores?” Regarding taking cash to and from the bank, 81% respondents said the men in their household do this, 7% said the women do this, 10% said the husband and wife do this chore together and 2% did not respond.

This question was also asked in 1983 and the results can be interpreted as a reflection of the changes that may have taken place in Pakistani society over the years. In 1983, 75% respondents said the men in their household did this, 1% said the women did this, 1% said the husband and wife did this chore together and 23% did not respond.

Question: “I will read out to you a list of different actions. In some households, in different parts of the country, men do these chores while in others women do. In your household, who usually carries out these chores?”
