The Kenya Integrated Household Budget Survey (KIHBS) was designed to collect key information for computation of updated poverty and inequality indicators, to update the labour force indicators, derive the consumer price index, and revise the national accounts information.

The survey was also aimed at providing data on key socio-economic aspects of the Kenyan population which include: education, health, energy, housing, water and sanitation. This data is critical to the national and county governments and private sector for the purpose of guiding investment and national development policy decisions. The basic report provides a reflection of the socio-economic status of the Kenyan population.

The Kenya National Bureau of Statistics (KNBS) would like to bring to the attention of the public that it has not placed any job advertisements for the 2019 Kenya Population and Housing Census, as is being purported through social media.

We wish to notify the public that all our recruitments are coordinated from our Human Resource Management and Development office in Nairobi. All KNBS job advertisements are done through the daily newspapers, uploaded on the website,, and a link sent to the official social media sites. Anytime you receive job advertisements purported to be from the Bureau, kindly verify such details from our official platforms.

The recruitment processes are free, fair and do not involve exchange of money or favors of any kind. Members of public are therefore advised NOT to send any money for employment.

The people behind the advert are fraudsters and conmen posing as employees of the Bureau for their selfish gains.

We caution the public to be wary of such individuals who purport to be recruiting on   behalf of the Bureau.
