Afghan Survey Released in Kabul
Today in Kabul, The Asia Foundation released Afghanistan in 2013: A Survey of the Afghan People. As Afghanistan approaches major security and political transitions in 2014 – the April presidential election and the December deadline to withdraw international armed forces -- the survey illuminates citizen views on critical issues in Afghanistan: the elections, security, political participation, the economy and employment, and women’s rights. More than half of Afghans polled say that the outcome of the 2014 election will make a positive difference in their lives, but 81% are concerned about election day security. Local pollsters interviewed 9,260 Afghan men and women face-to-face across all 34 provinces. See key findings, and read more on our blog.
