This briefing paper provides an analysis of popular perspectives on economic trends and performance of the Kenyan economy based on the results of the Round 5 survey of Afrobarometer. The paper further provides a comparative examination of these results vis-à-vis the previous rounds of the survey:  Rounds 2, 3, and 4, undertaken in 2003, 2005 and 2008 respectively. This is done in order to bring into perspective how Kenyans’ economic perceptions have changed over time.
