Is Afghanistan headed in the right direction?
The Asia Foundation’s 2012 Survey of the Afghan people, the eighth in a series, attempted to measure how Afghan citizens assess their country’s situation in general. Respondents were asked whether they think things in Afghanistan today are going in the right direction or the wrong direction.
Over half of the respondents (52%) say that things in the country are moving in the right direction, while 31% say things are moving in the wrong direction. A sizable proportion of people (15%) have mixed opinions (i.e. they feel that while some things are moving in the right direction, others are moving in the wrong direction).
