Over a period of 9 years, a 6 percentage-point increase has taken place in the proportion of Pakistanis who believe that the government is taking no action to control the price hike across various necessary items.

According to a Gilani Research Foundation Survey carried out by Gallup Pakistan, over a period of 9 years, a 6 percentage-point increase has taken place in the proportion of Pakistanis who believe that the government is taking no action to control the price hike across various necessary items.

A nationally representative sample of men and women from across the four provinces was asked, “Recently, there has been a tremendous increase in the price of meat, sugar, pulses and other items. Some people say that the inflation mafia set prices of their own choice, and the government does nothing about it. Others say that the government is continuing efforts to reduce inflation. What is your opinion?” In response to this question, 65% said that the government is taking no action to control the price hike, 31% said that the government is making efforts to control it, while 4% did not know or did not wish to respond.

Trend Analysis: In 2009, 59% said that the government is taking no action to control the price hike, 29% said that the government is making efforts to control it, while 12% did not know or did not wish to respond.

 Findings on this question are available for the years 2009 and 2018, and the graph below shows how the figures have changed in this time period.
