Asia Foundation Releases 2007 Afghan Public Opinion Poll

The Asia Foundation released findings from its most recent public opinion poll in Afghanistan in October. This report covers the largest population sample ever surveyed at one time in all 34 of Afghanistan’s provinces. “Afghanistan in 2007: A Survey of the Afghan People” follows polls conducted by the Foundation in 2004 and 2006. Collectively, the three surveys establish an accurate and long-term barometer of public opinion across Afghanistan to help assess the direction in which the country is moving in the post-Taliban era.

The 2007 survey captures the Afghan public’s perceptions of reconstruction, security, governance, and poppy cultivation -- as well as attitudes towards government and informal institutions, the role of women and Islam in society, and the impact of media. The fieldwork for the survey was conducted in June 2007, and consists of a random sample of 6,263 in-person interviews with Afghan men and women 18 years of age and above, from different social, economic, and ethnic communities in rural and urban areas in all 34 provinces of Afghanistan.

Similar surveys will be conducted in 2008, 2009, and 2010.
