Is Afghanistan headed in the right direction?

The Asia Foundation’s 2013 Survey of the Afghan people, the ninth 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.

Overall, 57% of respondents surveyed in 2013 say that the country is moving in the right direction, and 38% say that it is moving in the wrong direction. Using the timeline above, you can see that the percentage of respondents who say that the country going in the right direction has fluctuated since 2006, but has remained fairly high.
