Kabul, Afghanistan – The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) announced it will contribute $15 million to the Afghan Government to support completion of a landmark household and population survey.  Once complete, the survey will, for the first time in more than 35 years, provide Afghanistan and donors with reliable economic and demographic data, which can be used for future planning.

The Afghanistan Central Statistics Organization manages the $74-million Socio-Demographic and Economic Survey jointly with the United Nations Population Fund, which is helping to finance the study. Other donors include the Japanese and Danish governments and the United Kingdom’s Department for International Development.

The survey will count people and households in most villages and urban areas in every province of Afghanistan. The data will be reliable down to the district level, including limited village-level data.
