Age and Gender Analysis

According to foreign tourism survey 2000, foreign tourism in Pakistan
is mainly a male dominated activity. It is estimated that 71 percent foreign
tourists were male. In other words, seven out of ten tourists were male.
Among Indian tourists, the ratio of males was lower being 64 percent. The
higher female ratio in Indian tourists is on account of their V.F.R. motivation
for visits to Pakistan.

The analysis further shows that about 31 percent of non-Indian
tourists were in the age group of 31 - 40 years, followed by 24 percent in the
age group of 16 - 30 years, 23 percent in the age group of 41-50 years and
about 17 percent in the age group of 51 years and above. The age-wise
distribution of Indian tourists differs from non-Indian tourists, as 28 percent of
Indian tourists belonged to age group of 31 - 40 years, followed by 25
percent in the age group of 51 years & above, 22 percent in the age group of
41 - 50 years and remaining 25 percent in the age group of 00-30 years.
Tourists under 40 years were 53 percent and 60 percent respectively in case
of Indian and non-Indian arrivals ( See Table No. 2.9 of Appendix).
