Asia Foundation: Survey of the Afghan People, December 2016

Subject: Afghan people and culture

The 2016 Survey of the Afghan People polled 12,658 Afghan respondents from 16 ethnic groups across all 34 provinces, including insecure and physically challenging environments. The annual survey is the longest-running and broadest nationwide survey of Afghan attitudes and opinions. Since 2004, the Survey has gathered the opinions of more than 87,000 Afghan men and women, providing a unique longitudinal portrait of evolving public perceptions of security, the economy, governance and government services, elections, media, women’s issues, and migration. This year's edition finds a continued downward trajectory in national mood, with a record low 29.3% of Afghans saying that the country is moving in the right direction.
