Computer Assisted Personal Interviewing (CAPI) in Afghanistan

Afghan Futures W7 Smartphone Survey

KABUL, Afghanistan, August 7, 2015 – As part of the ongoing Afghan Futures series, ACSOR-Surveys has conducted its first Computer Assisted Personal Interviewing (CAPI) Survey, in cooperation with D3 Systems, Inc. and Research Control Solutions (RCS).

A team of 49 male and female local interviewers collected data on smartphones using the Research Control Solutions software. Interviews were conducted in Dari and Pashto with 470 male and female Kabulis over the age of 18.

This exciting development means that urban surveys in Afghanistan can now be conducted on mobile devices as well as with pen and paper. RCS surveys can also be administered via tablet, on computers, or online. ACSOR looks forward to using this new technology in future projects when possible.
