THE KENYA COMMUNITY BASELINE SURVEY TO INFORM OXFAMS NORAD II GRANT

The baseline survey focused on establishing community perceptions of voice, representation, negotiation, access to information, influence and empowerment in relation to revenue management within county governments and (for the case of Turkana), in the involvement of communities in decision making within the extractives industry.

A non-experimental approach was used to measure the dimensions of Social Accountability within communities in Nairobi and Turkana counties. Probability sampling was used for the household quantitative survey to ensure that all populations living in target areas had an equal opportunity to be selected as respondents, using a three-stage stratified sampling approach (Sub-county, Ward, Household). The methodology was designed to collect data from household heads or their spouses, based on the demographic, socio-economic characteristics of the households and determine baseline statistics against the social accountability dimensions. The quantitative/survey data was collected using a structured household questionnaire that is programmed into mobile data collection application. For the qualitative data, a purposive sampling method was used to select study respondents, based on demographic attributes (gender, age) or role in the community (leader, stakeholder).
