Afghanistan's history, internal political development, foreign relations, and very existence as an independent state have largely been determined by its geographic location at the crossroads of Central, West, and South Asia. In modern times, as well as in antiquity, vast armies of the world passed through Afghanistan, temporarily establishing local control and often dominating Iran and northern India. Islam has played a key role in the formation of Afghanistan as well. Although it was the scene of great empires and flourishing trade for over two millennia, Afghanistan did not become a truly independent nation until the twentieth century. In much of the twentieth century, Afghanistan remained neutral. It was not a participant in World War II, nor aligned with either power bloc in the Cold War. However, it was a beneficiary of the latter rivalry as both the Soviet Union and the U.S. vied for influence by building such infrastructure works as roads, airports, water and sewer systems, and hospitals. The U.S. State Department Central Classified Files are the definitive source of American diplomatic reporting on political, military, social, and economic developments throughout the world in the twentieth century.

The National Statistical Offices (NSOs) from African countries in collaboration with the Minnesota Population Center (MPC) is developing the the African Integrated Census Microdata (AICMD) portal. The database contains anonymized microdata samples encompassing 19 censuses and totaling more than 27 million person records (June 2010). The integration and full documentation of the data are organized by the MPC, in parallel with similar activities covering other parts of the world with funding by the National Science Foundation and National Institutes of Health of the United States. By 2015, the MPC is committed to disseminating at least 250 integrated census microdata sets from 80 or more countries. African censuses may constitute as much as one-fourth of the database with widespread support of NSOs in Africa. Contains approximately 112 census microdata samples from the 1960, 1970, 1980, 1990 and 2000 for several African countries. Includes an inventory of censuses, however not all countries have available microdata.
