On November 14th, in Kabul and Washington, D.C., The Asia Foundation will release findings from Afghanistan in 2012: A Survey of the Afghan People–the broadest, most comprehensive public opinion poll in the country – covering all 34 provinces, with candid data gleaned from face-to-face interviews with nearly 6,300 Afghan citizens on security, corruption, women’s rights, the economy, development, and the Taliban. This marks the eighth in the Foundation’s series of surveys in Afghanistan; taken together they provide a barometer of Afghan public opinion over time.
