UNICEF Afghanistan 2015
Making socioeconomic data accessible to everyone
AfghanInfo, a DevInfo database of socioeconomic statistics on Afghanistan pooling information from the MICS, national census, and other sources, has been managed since 2007 by the country’s Central Statistics Organization with support from UNICEF. In 2015, a new mobile app was released to access AfghanInfo data to significant publicity. By broadly increasing access to the database, the mobile app has served to disseminate and open its use; the tool is popular among university students, researchers and decision- makers, and has been highly downloaded.
Through AfghanInfo’s simple interface, users can access information on a wide variety of indicators either nationally or for a specific province. Data can be visualized in a table, on a map, or as a column, bar, pie chart, area, or line graph. Visualizations can be saved or downloaded and shared through other social media applications.
