  • What This Chapter Shows: This chapter provides a brief overview of the major elements of human well-being, the definition of poverty in official Kenyan statistics, and various indicators related to well-being or lack of well-being. National maps familiarize the reader with changes in Kenya’s population distribution between 1989 and 1999. Subsequent maps of selected indicators of poverty, inequity, and housing quality exhibit varying geographic patterns across Kenya. The maps indicate some convergence in spatial patterns showing that a great number of administrative areas in the central part of the country are among those considered to be the better off. The maps also highlight the exceptions to this trend: some areas with low poverty rates nonetheless retain a significant density of poor people. At the same time, not all areas with high poverty rates and high poverty densities have high levels of poor housing or high inequity. A careful analysis of the spatial patterns of multiple indicators of well-being is therefore needed to better describe the poverty situation, and design and implement poverty reduction efforts.
