Salary ranges

We already know that an Advocate can earn between 407,300 AFN and 1,138,300 AFN on average in Afghanistan. This is known as the range in statistics.

What this means is that approximately 50% of the population earn less than 695,400 AFN, and 50% of the population earn more than 695,400 AFN.

If you are earning more than the median salary, that's a good indicator that you are being paid well.

If you're not earning more than the median salary, your objective should be to increase your earnings to be at least as high as the median salary (which you can do by asking for a pay rise, looking for a better paying job, etc).
