To address this challenge, we have included parochial groups in the models, which are not intended to correspond to particular groups, but which represent these low-level affiliations. Lastly, small, armed groups, whether they are one of the many militias operating throughout Afghanistan or part of the insurgency, are a crucial element to political life in Afghanistan.
