Dataset shows estimates of Gross Value Added (GVA) at current prices by county and by industry (sector). The breakdown indicates how much each county contributed to each economic activity (for instance Samburu contributed KSh 10,847 million to the Agriculture, Forestry and Fishing sector in 2017). Intuitively, the table shows how specific economic activities contributed to each of the county’s economy in 2017. The column totals highlight the extent to which each sector contributed to Kenya’s GDP in 2017 while the row totals show the county contribution to GDP. Generally, the leading counties are associated with large populations and where major urban centers are located. In addition, counties associated with thriving economic activities such as agriculture, manufacturing, transportation, financial, real estate and wholesale and retail trade, took lead in the ranking by GCP.
Kenya - Gross County Product (GCP) by Economic Activities per county
The constant price estimates are useful for computing economic growth rates by county. Although not the ideal approach, the use of implicit deflators (for the value added at the national level) to derive constant estimates at the county level was deemed as the most practical. This assumes that price changes are substantially similar in all counties even if price levels may be different.
