Kenya Household Master Sample Frame (K-HMSF) Development

As the Principal Government agency mandated to collect official statistics, Kenya National Bureau of Statistics (KNBS) maintains sampling frames. It is from these sampling frames that samples are scientifically drawn for participation in surveys. Data collected from these surveys is used for evidence-based policy formulation and monitoring.

One of these sampling frames is the Kenya Household Master Sample Frame (K-HMSF) which is created after conducting a Population and Housing Census. Following completion of the 2019 Kenya Population and Housing Census, KNBS has began the process of creating a new sampling frame. The frame will be based on the Enumeration Areas (EAs) used during the 2019 Population and Housing Census.

The Master Sample Frame is developed in stages. KNBS is developing Phase 2 of the Frame, and calls on your support in this undertaking in providing employees access to the enumeration areas. The exercise will be conducted by a team of KNBS employees, whose names and ID numbers will be indicated in letters signed by the KNBS County Statistical Officers. The research teams will be accompanied by Village Elders. Data collection began on 12th May and will run for 73 days in the entire country. This is a national exercise.

Queries regarding this exercise may be addressed to: bavusevwa@knbs.or.ke

Degree of Urbanisation (DEGURBA)

Different countries use different criteria to define urban and rural areas, which in turn, reflect their various perspectives as to what constitutes urban and rural areas. Whilst it is advisable for countries to have their own national definitions, which can be implemented in their statistical systems as well as to disaggregate indicators by urban and rural areas for development of national policies; there is need for a definition that is both nationally relevant and internationally comparable.
