Afghanistan in 2012:
A Survey of the Afghan People
At Kabul and Washington, D.C. launch events, The Asia Foundation has released findings from Afghanistan in 2012: A Survey of the Afghan People, the broadest public opinion poll in the country. In June 2012, 742 Afghan pollsters—both men and women—fanned out across all 34 provinces to gather first-hand opinions from nearly 6,300 Afghan citizens on a wide range of topics critical to the future of Afghanistan. This marks the eighth in the Foundation's series of surveys in Afghanistan.
