Afghanistan in 2017: A Survey of the Afghan People Coming Nov. 14

November 1, 2017

On November 14, The Asia Foundation will release findings from Afghanistan in 2017: A Survey of the Afghan People—the broadest, most comprehensive public opinion poll in the country, covering all 34 provinces. The 2017 survey includes the results of face-to-face interviews with more than 10,000 Afghan citizens who tell us their views on security, the economy, governance and government services, elections, media, women’s issues, and migration. This year’s survey includes several new questions on prisons and incarceration, as well as additional questions on migration, the Taliban, and ISIS/Daesh. Stay tuned for the launch, as well as analysis from experts in Kabul in this blog on November 15.
