Kabul, April 9, 2012 - The Asia Foundation yesterday released findings from the Voter Behavior Survey of the 2010 Parliamentary Elections of Afghanistan. The Voter Behavior Survey provides a sense of the Afghan people's understanding of the elections and election management bodies. As the international community and Afghan citizens prepare for the 2013 provincial council and 2014 presidential elections - significant components of the transition to Afghan-led security - the opinions and sentiments expressed in the survey by the people of Afghanistan offer noteworthy perspective. The Voter Behavior Survey covers a population sample of 2,397 individuals from across the 34 provinces of Afghanistan. The fieldwork for the survey was conducted between March 14 and 31, 2011. Afghan citizens 18 years of age and older, both women and men, from different social, economic, and ethnic communities in rural and urban areas in all 34 provinces of Afghanistan were surveyed. Funded by the Australian Government through the Australian Agency for International Development (AusAID), the survey was designed, directed, and edited by The Asia Foundation. Interviews were completed in person by 40 Afghan men and 40 women employed by the Peace Humanitarian Organization (PHO) in Kabul. The data aggregated can be analyzed according to age, gender, education, ethnicity, income, and geographic locale.
