Surveying Afghanistan in 2012

November 7, 2012

In June 2012, a team of Afghan pollsters – both men and women – fanned out across the country, often traveling long distances in difficult conditions, to gather first-hand opinions from nearly 6,300 Afghan citizens in all 34 provinces on a range of pressing topics. On November 14, the data and findings from these interviews will be released in The Asia Foundation’s eighth Survey of the Afghan People – the broadest and most comprehensive public opinion poll in the country. The seminal report sheds light on what Afghans think about security, corruption, women’s rights, the economy, development, and peace and reconciliation. The images in this slideshow were captured across various provinces as the survey work was conducted, and offer a rare glimpse of life in Afghanistan in 2012. Click here to RSVP to the release of the survey findings  at The National Press Club in Washington D.C., on the morning of November 14. Stay tuned next week for poll analysis from our experts in Afghanistan.
