According to a Gallup Pakistan National Survey conducted in the year 2001 (15 years ago) respondents were asked, “How much do you like kite flying personally?” To this, 9% said very much, 22% said a little, 68% said absolutely not. 1% did not know or did not wish to respond.
Comparative Picture: The question was asked again in 2016 to enable a concrete comparison. In 2016, 9% said very much, 29% said a little, 61% said absolutely not.
According to public opinion, there has been no change in the proportion of Pakistanis who like kite flying very much, a 7% increase in the proportion of Pakistanis who like kite flying a little and a 7% decrease in the proportion of Pakistanis who do not like kite flying absolutely.
This question is frequently asked almost every year. Analyzing the results for each year we find that kite flying remains a consistently low interest sport over the last 15 years.
