Kenya National Treasury readies to conduct census in 2019   

NAIROBI (Xinhua) -- Kenya said on Thursday that preparations for conducting the 2019 census have kicked off.

Henry Rotich, the cabinet secretary of the National Treasury, told a county forum in Nairobi that Kenya has embarked on the processes of undertaking the 2019 Population and Housing Census.

“A pilot census will soon be conducted in selected sub-location in 12 counties for a period of seven days as part of best practices,” Rotich said during the launch of the 2018 Statistical Abstract Report for Laikipia County.

According to the National Treasury, about 170,000 personnel will carry out the census that takes places once every ten years.
