Why did we collect these information

Why did we collect these information?

AREU research teams/ Other research and policy organizations such as Government and International donors

Most of the statistics is recorded in Dari/ Translated to English for international use.

This database is a start to be further developed

Aim 1 aid effectiveness project
Aim 1: Aid Effectiveness project

  • These figures can be useful to assess developmental trends and policy-making

  • Help to examine issues such as aid effectiveness and governance in Afghanistan

Aim 2 improving research skills
Aim 2: Improving Research Skills

  • To develop research skills such as referencing, familiarizing ourselves with Data sources and resources recording and coding data.

  • To analyze statistics (for example, finding data that does not match and coincidental events)


1. Changes in government and policies affected the data(e.g. changes in the number of secondary schools and categories of schools)


2. Changes in Data from one year to another with no apparent reason.

3. The data estimation is based on the calculation from 1357 ( e.g. the asphalt road construction)

Challenge 4
Challenge 4:

The data management from the year 1382 onward is quite different from the 1360s and 1370s.

After President Karzai came to power, data was collected using different methodologies and recorded differently (e.g. road construction from 1382-86 is included in reconstruction projects / and statistics on dry fruit export).



The figures from one year were not consistent with the figures from the following years.

Missing Data: The data has not been collect over the Taliban years

We can’t rely on these data alone, but if you compare with other sources, it may still be useful.
