The overall objective of the survey is to assess the socio-economic impact of the COVID-19 in Kenya. The survey is aimed at measuring the impact of COVID-19 on health, labor market, transport cost and housing sectors. The survey is also aimed at assessing the awareness of COVID-19 and the appropriate protective measures.
The COVID-19 Household Socio-Economic Impact Survey is a longitudinal survey set to be implemented in 6 waves on a biweekly basis. This means that repeated observations are derived by following a sample of persons and collecting data from a sequence of interviews. The survey targets adults aged 18 years and above and was designed to provide reliable estimates at county level. The sampled respondents provide information about themselves and the households where they currently reside. The survey is being implemented using Computer Assisted Telephone Interviews (CATI) approach in which the interviews are conducted through telephone and the responses are captured in tablets and transmitted to a central server for data processing. Data collection for the first wave was undertaken between 2nd and 9th May 2020.
