Kenya National Bureau of Statistics hereby releases the Producer Price Index (PPI) for the fourth quarter of 2015. Producer Price Index measures the gross changes in the trading price of products on the domestic and non-domestic markets, at all stages of processing.

These dates correspond to the first, second, third and fourth quarters of the year, respectively.
The Producer Price Indices are grouped according to the International Standards of Industrial Classifications of All Economic Activities (ISIC) Rev 4.
