The availability of statistics on development indicators is key to monitoring the impact of development interventions and progress towards implementation of the Afghanistan National Development Strategy (ANDS). The following briefs provide a summary of selected social and economic measures of individual and household wellbeing for each province of Afghanistan, and are based on the latest nationally representative household data from the National Risk and Vulnerability Assessment (NRVA) 2007/08. These provincial briefs are a joint effort of the Ministry of Economy and the World Bank, and build on the earlier collaboration in producing the “Poverty Status in Afghanistan: A Profile based on National Risk and Vulnerability Assessment (NRVA 2007/08)”. The selection of the indicators has been based on: the analytical work from the Poverty Status report, the monitoring needs of the Ministry of Economy, and on continuing analysis to better understand the sources of sub-national differences in wellbeing.
