2017 Survey of the Afghan People Release in Kabul and Washington, DC on November 14

In 2017 The Asia Foundation polled more than 10,000 Afghan citizens from all 34 provinces. The findings of the 13th Survey of the Afghan People emerge amid the escalation of attacks in Afghanistan and the U.S. Administration’s new strategy for the South Asia region. In this challenging research environment, the annual Asia Foundation Survey is the longest-running and broadest survey of Afghan attitudes on critical issues facing the country. Since 2004, the Survey has gathered the opinions of more than 97,000 Afghan men and women, providing an unmatched longitudinal portrait of public perceptions of security, the economy, governance, elections, women’s issues, and migration.
