Summary of the sample design for PMA2014/Kenya-R1:

PMA2014/Kenya, the first round of data collection in Kenya, used a multi-stage cluster design with urban/rural regions as strata. The first stage of sampling was at the county level using probability proportional to size procedures to select 9 out of 47 counties: Nairobi, Kilifi, Nandi, Nyamira, Kiambu, Bungoma, Siaya, Kericho and Kitui. Within the nine selected counties, enumeration areas (EAs) were selected proportional to size with urban/rural stratification. The sample was powered to generate national estimates of all woman mCPR with less than 5% margin of error. The survey was also able to generate estimates on family planning services by including a random sample of up to three private service delivery points within each EA’s boundary. In addition, three public health service delivery points that serve the EA population were also selected—a dispensary, a health center and a referral hospital, either at the sub-county or county level.
