A nationally representative sample of adult men and women who have ever eaten noodles inside or outside their home, from across the four provinces was asked, “How long ago did you eat noodles the last time?” In response to this question, 17% respondents said the last time they ate noodles was 6 months ago.

Bilal Gilani, Executive Director at Gallup Pakistan, adds: “Gallup Pakistan is striving to present to its audience a holistic picture of Pakistanis.
This includes presenting findings based on Gilani Research Foundation’s polls which look at various lifestyle aspects of Pakistani life.
We believe seemingly mundane findings such as what Pakistanis wear, eat, watch, celebrate, and mourn etc. throws an interesting and invaluable light on how Pakistani society behaves and believes.”
The study was released by Gilani Research Foundation and carried out by Gallup Pakistan, the Pakistani affiliate of Gallup International.
The recent survey was carried out among a sample of 559 men and women in rural and urban areas of all four provinces of the country, during February 16 – February 23, 2015. Error margin is estimated to be approximately ± 2-3 per cent at 95% confidence level.
