The Afghanistan Interactive time-series visualization provides a comprehensive profile of the most recent progress on socio-economic outcomes in Afghanistan, both at the national and at the provincial level. The tool uses information available in the four latest rounds of the Afghanistan Living Conditions Survey (ALCS) (formerly, National Risk and Vulnerability Assessment), conducted in 2016-17, 2013-14, 2011-12, and 2007-08 by the National Statistics and Information Authority (NSIA, formerly Central Statistics Organization). The values of the indicators are World Bank staff estimates based on public and private data sources. Government estimates were replicated to the best of our abilities wherever possible. However, differing definitions and assumptions might have resulted in slight discrepancies. For official government estimates, please refer to the National Statistics and Information Authority’s webpage: https://nsia.gov.af
The indicators compiled in the time-series visualization span several dimensions of wellbeing, including poverty and inequality, food security, labor market outcomes, sectoral distribution of employment, education, gender, health and access to services and infrastructure. For each of the indicators, the tool provides information on both the temporal evolution and the spatial distribution of the outcome of interest over the 10 year time period between 2007-08 and 2016-17 across Afghanistan’s 34 provinces.
