2015/16 KENYA INTEGRATED HOUSEHOLD BUDGET SURVEY (KIHBS) HAS COMMENCED

THEME:  Measuring Well – Being For Sustainable Development

 

The Kenya National Bureau of Statistics (KNBS) COMMENCED data collection on 1st September, 2015 for the, “2015/16 Kenya Integrated Household           Budget survey (KIHBS),” in all the 47 Counties as earlier planned.

 

The Survey will run for 12 months from September, 2015 to 30th August, 2016.

 

The main objective of thisNational Survey is to collect data on households to measure among other things welfare, and to generate data to compute a new Consumer Price Index. The survey will also address data gaps and will enable monitoring of Government initiatives such as vision 2030.

In addition, the data collected will enable the Government to make evidence based decisions when planning for development initiatives at both National and county levels. KIHBS is the first Household Budget survey to be conducted under the devolved system of Government.

 

We ask Kenyans to continue cooperating with KNBS officers who are visiting various households and in particular to continue providing accurate information if your household is selected to participate in this Survey.

 

 

All information collected will be treated confidentially at the Kenya National Bureau of Statistics as required by the Statistics Act, 2006.

Quality Statistics are Crucial for Development.
