Dr. Nabil Kukali: 90.6% of the Palestinians are cell-phone users.
This survey is conducted by the Worldwide Independent Network for Market Research (WIN) and GALLUP International, which form together the largest association of leading independent market research and polling firms and centers throughout the whole world.
The WIN/Gallup International is made up of the (68) largest, independent market research and polling firms in their respective countries, with a combined annual revenue of over US$ 600 million and covering (89%) of the world’s market.
The accumulated expertise of the WIN/GALLUP International with (68) members is formidable and their joint mission is to offer clients the best of both worlds: the highest quality at the most competitive prices.
WIN/GALLUP International with their members consistently demonstrate their expert ability to conduct multi-country surveys on a comparable basis and deliver the highest quality. Their members are leading national institutions, centers and companies with a profound local knowledge of research methods and techniques, statistical sources, customs and cultural differences of their own country and society.
With only one member agency per country carefully selected by the Association Board, members work together on a daily basis to share knowledge, new research techniques and tools, providing thereby the most appropriate solutions to international research projects and services.
The Palestinian Territories are represented in the Association by the Palestinian Center for Public Opinion (PCPO), that is founded in 1994 and is run since then by its founder and president, Dr. Nabil Kukali, who said that “the attendance of PCPO at WIN/GALLUP International as a member representing the Palestinian Territories is viewed as a great achievement for our country Palestine and as an international recognition of our center’s ability, efficiency and credibility to conduct global surveys and public opinion polls around the world”.
In this context, Dr. Kukali mentioned that 90.6% of the Palestinians, at the age of 18 years and older, carry already cell-phones, and 22% among them own smart-phones of different brands.
Dr. Kukali further said that the results undoubtedly show that the Palestinians, notwithstanding the very hard conditions imposed on them by the Israeli ِAuthority, are keeping pace with the modern technology of telecommunications and social media devices and adapt these to their benefit. This is shown, for example, by the relatively long time Palestinians spend in average on the Internet educating themselves and promoting their vocational abilities, as well as interacting and communicating with others on the different social media sites inside and outside Palestine.
