Top 20 Counties In Kenya By Their Expenditure Size

by John Nyabuto

Many Kenyan websites have written for you before about the most expensive counties to live in, with a basic skeleton piece of information about why which county is the most expensive to reside.

Well, we have a detailed kind of narrative over this other side. According to the Kenya National Bureau Of Statistics, the value of food expenditure in core-urban or urban households is on average more than double what rural households spend while rural households spend more than 60% of their income on food.

Generally, the expenditure size for someone living in Nairobi, Mombasa and Kiambu is very high with West Pokot registering the least expenditure size.

Here is a look at the top 20 counties in Kenya by their expenditure size.
