During the month of September 2005 (6th – 28th), the Afrobarometer surveyed a nationally representative, random, stratified probability sample of 1278 Kenyans. Face-to-face interviews were conducted by the Afrobarometer team based at the University of Nairobi Institute for Development Studies (IDS) in English, Swahili and six other local languages across all eight provinces of the country. The sample was drawn by taking the smallest geographic units, census Enumeration Areas (EA’s), and stratifying all EA’s across the country into separate lists according to region and urban/rural status. 160 EA’s were then randomly selected from these lists with the probability proportionate to its size in the overall population as represented in the 1999 census. This ensured that every eligible adult had an equal and known chance of being selected. Eight households were then randomly selected within each EA, and one respondent of 18 years of age or older was randomly selected from each household. Sampling procedures ensured that a 50:50 male to female ration was achieved by having every other interview done with a female. A sample of this size is sufficient to yield an overall margin of error of +/- 3 percent at a confidence level of 95 percent.
