The Socio-Demographic and Economic Survey (SDES) in Parwan Province was carried out successfully in September 2014. This is the fourth batch of provinces, together with Kapisa Province, which undertook SDES after the successful completion of Kabul Province. This is a continuing project initiated in 2011 in Bamiyan by the Central Statistics Organization (CSO) of Afghanistan and is being rolled out to other provinces with the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) providing technical support. This report presents data on the population characteristics, literacy, educational attainment, migration, employment, functional difficulty, fertility, mortality, birth registration and living status of parents disaggregated by sex and district. Information on the household and housing characteristics is also included. The findings of the report will aid the local development planners and programme implementers to develop sound evidence-based policies and programs designed for the localities for the effective delivery of basic services to the people of Afghanistan.
