The monograph presents the findings of a largescale survey on the skills, employment and income patterns, social relations, occupational aspirations and related aspects of the Afghan refugees in Pakistan. The survey covered nearly 3,000 households in 58 villages through a stratified two-stage random sample. The information was obtained through a structural interview schedule. It is interesting to note that both male household heads as well as senior females were interviewed separately.
The study was made possible through co-operation between UNRISD, the Government of Pakistan and the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees which also provided the bulk of the finance for the survey.
