The Kenya Demographic and Health Survey (KDHS) 2022 has been made public by the government through the Kenya National Bureau of Statistics (KNBS), making it the sixth survey to be made public in the country.
In order to assist in the design, implementation, monitoring, and evaluation of population and health-related programs at the national and county levels, the 2022 survey seeks to offer up-to-date estimates of demographic, health, and nutrition variables.
The objectives include calculating conception rates, figuring out how common contraception is in the nation, lowering infant mortality, enhancing children’s nutrition, and looking at women’s dietary diversity.
The extent and trends of domestic violence and female genital mutilation/cutting are important considerations, as are learning more about knowledge and behavior related to the transmission of HIV and other sexually transmitted infections (STIs).
The Kenya Household Master Sample Frame (K-HMSF), the frame used by KNBS to undertake household-based sample surveys in Kenya, served as the source of the sample for the 2022 KDHS.
Estimates for the country, rural and urban areas, and, for some indicators, counties, will all be provided by the 2022 KDHS.
With 25 households picked for each cluster, the sample was created to comprise 42,300 households, resulting in 1,692 clusters scattered over the nation, with 1,026 clusters in rural areas and 666 in urban ones.
