The Whole of Afghanistan Assessment (WoAA 2020) implemented a quantitative methodology reliant upon approximately 12,592 household level surveys in accessible parts of Afghanistan from 04 August 2020 to 05 September 2020. The Covid-19 pandemic increased commodity prices, decreased livelihood opportunities, and strained Afghanistan’s weak health and social service infrastructures. Given the generally poor mobile and WiFi services across Afghanistan and the particularly poor access that vulnerable and displaced populations have to mobile phones and computers, face to face interviews were conducted. However, in recognition of the “Due No Harm” and “Duty of Care” principles, new procedures and trainings were established to limit both field staff and respondent exposure to Covid-19, survey questions were limited to only those crucial to cluster planning, the confidence rate for the sampling was increased, and focus group discussions (FGDs) were eliminated. Data collection was conducted using stratified cluster sampling with a 95/5 at national level for all population groups. To reduce gender bias, male-female enumerator pairs conducted assessments in provinces where it was feasible to do so. Male-female enumerator pairs interviewed one male member and one female member of each household, when possible, using the same questionnaire. Data from female Heads of Households (HoHs) and female interviewees was then used to complement and compare against male HoH and interviewee responses.
