Overview

Kenya National Bureau of Statistics hereby releases the monthly Consumer
Price Indices (CPI) and rates of inflation, for April, 2020. These numbers are
based on the new CPI whose base period is February 2019. They were
generated from a survey of retail prices that targeted a basket of household
consumption goods and services that was derived from results of the 2015/16
Kenya Integrated Household Budget Survey (KIHBS). The retail price survey
was conducted during the second and third weeks of the month, with prices
being obtained from selected retail outlets located in 50 data collection zones,
14 of which are in Nairobi and 36 in other urban areas.
The CPI increased by 0.86 per cent from 107.00
in March 2020 to 107.92 in April 2020. The overall year on year inflation in
April 2020 stood at 5.62 per cent from a revised 5.51 per cent in March
2020.
