Afghanistan in 2015:
A Survey of the Afghan People

Major Afghan public opinion poll reveals rising concern

Afghan optimism about the overall direction of the country and confidence in government fell to their lowest point in a decade, while fear for personal safety increased to a record high. Afghans cite deteriorating security, unemployment, and corruption as the main reasons for their pessimism.

The longest-running and broadest nationwide survey of Afghan attitudes and opinions, the annual survey provides insight into the views of Afghans on issues central to the country’s development. Conducted between June 11-28 this year with 9,586 Afghan citizens representing 14 ethnic groups and in 34 provinces, this year’s survey includes new questions on youth, ISIL/ISIS, women in leadership, and mobile phone access.
