Kenya National Bureau of Statistics hereby releases the monthly Consumer Price Indices (CPI) and rates of inflation, for April, 2020. The CPI increased by 0.86 per cent from 107.00 in March 2020 to 107.92 in April 2020. The overall year on year inflation in April 2020 stood at 5.62 per cent from a revised 5.51 per cent in March 2020.
These numbers are based on the new CPI whose base period is February 2019. They were generated from a survey of retail prices that targeted a basket of household consumption goods and services that was derived from the results of the 2015/16 Kenya Integrated Household Budget Survey (KIHBS). The retail price survey was conducted during the second and third weeks of the month, with prices being obtained from selected retail outlets located in 50 data collection zones, 14 of which are in Nairobi and 36 in other urban areas.
