2011 Survey of the Afghan People- Washington, DC and New York Launches

On November 15, The Asia Foundation released findings from “Afghanistan in 2011: A Survey of the Afghan People” – the broadest and most comprehensive public opinion poll in the country covering all 34 provinces. Candid, first-hand data was gleaned from face-to-face interviews with 6,300 Afghan citizens on a variety of contemporary issues, including security, corruption, women’s rights, the economy, development, and the Taliban. Survey launch events occurred simultaneously in Kabul and Washington, D.C., with additional events in New York and London. In Washington and New York, Asia Foundation President David D. Arnold, former Afghanistan Country Representative George Varughese, Technical Advisor Sunil Pillai, and Deputy Country Representative in Afghanistan Sheilagh Henry presented the findings at the U.S. Institute of Peace and the Asia Society respectively.
