Afghan Futures Presented at AAPOR 2017

Matt Warshaw, COO, recently presented findings from the most recent wave of D3’s on-going “Afghan Futures” polling series at AAPOR’s 72nd Annual Conference in New Orleans.  The goal of this project is to continue to enrich public understanding of Afghanistan, as well as to share insights into the methodological and operational challenges of conflict-zone research.

The new data from this study included Afghan attitudes on the power sharing government, the reduction in international forces and international aid spending, a resurgent Taliban, and the continued presence of ISIS sympathizers in Afghanistan.  The presentation not only shows the results from our recent national surveys, but also addresses what comes next for Afghanistan.  Click on the presentation below to learn more.

Afghan Futures Presentation at AAPOR 2017

The “Afghan Futures” project began in 2010, and it includes results from nine national face-to-face surveys conducted in Dari and Pashto among a random national sample of approximately 18,000 respondents (2,000 per wave) across all thirty-four provinces of Afghanistan.  The data were collected by D3’s subsidiary, ACSOR-Surveys, headquartered in Kabul.
