Welcome to the Covid-19 EconData Kenya site, supported by FSD Kenya. We are working hard to gather and publish data that will help in the targeting of economically vulnerable populations and to track impacts of the response to Covid-19 on the economy, the financial sector and people's financial lives and resilience.

It is crucial for policy makers to understand the economic impact of measures taken to control the spread of Covid-19 to enable them to help prepare for and mitigate the worst of the effects. Collecting economic data takes time and there are often lags in the data ranging from a few days to months. We are building analytic tools for key variables such as:
Targeting Economically Vulnerable Populations
Currently we have the latest data from the 2019 Housing and Population Census from Kenya National Bureau of Statistics that have been compiled at Sub County level. The following data is available for download along with analytic dashboards:
We also have data from other sources including:
Food Security - Famine Early Warning Systems Network (FEWS NET)
More datasets will be added in the next few days.
In the meantime if you have suggestions for datasets you'd like to see added to the repository please use this form to let us know what you'd like to see.
