Data Analyst Consultant Jobs in Kenya


Project Overview

  • Disability statistics in Kenya have over the years recorded a significantly lower disability prevalence compared to the global 15% prevalence rate estimated by the World Health Organization. According to the 2019 census, 2.2% (0.9 million people) of Kenyans live with some form of disability.

  • Direct comparison of disability prevalence in 2009 and 2019 is problematic due to differences in data collection methodologies, ages covered, and the size of administrative units. The 2019 census also indicates that 1.9% of men have a disability compared with 2.5% of women. The 2009 census reported 3.4% of men and 3.5% of women had a disability.

  • Documented studies have shown that due to several causes there is a higher prevalence of disability among women than men, the increased incidence in sexual and gender based violence among women in addition to poor reproductive healthcare services and nutrition, women and girls with disabilities experience disproportionate levels of exclusion due to gender and disability.

  • The lack of data exacerbates the invisibility of women with disabilities, and for duty bearers and policymakers- it is critical to have the right data to be able to develop the right policies and budgets. With support from UNFPA, This Ability Trust developed a USSD (Unstructured Supplementary Service Data)platform using mobile technology to collect specific data on women with disabilities, to address the lack of data, and to improvethe knowledge onthis specific population.
