Mapping village variability in Afghanistan: The use of cluster analysis to construct village typologies

The evidence and analysis reported in this paper point to important differences between villages in the ways village elite behaves and the consequences this might have for the generation of public goods, both old and new, within the village. Further, the evidence from the villages sampled in Nangarhar and Badakhshan and the cluster analyses reveals there are distinct types of villages and suggests what some of the underlying causal factors of this variation might be.
