Column P16: Birthplace

76. Where was this person born? Birthplace is the usual place of residence of mother at the time of the respondent's birth. This question is meant to establish persons who are not enumerated in their places of birth and hence have migrated. Sometimes expectant mothers move from the rural areas to urban areas for purposes of delivery since maternity services are better at the latter. This kind of movement is short lived and must not be confused with a migratory one. For example, if a woman who usually resides in Kiambu district moves to Nairobi to deliver her child, it will be assumed that the woman went to Nairobi purposely for maternity services. Thus the district of birth of the child will be recorded as Kiambu.

(a) For persons born in Kenya, code district using the list provided on the back side of the form cover. For example, for a person born in Kiambu code "201" and for a person born in Tharaka code "412".

(b) If the district of birth is the same as the district of enumeration, mark an "X" in the smallest box in column P16, and leave the other three bigger boxes blank.

(c) Relate the person's birthplace to the present district's frontiers as far as possible. District boundaries have been changed over the years and we want to relate a person's place of birth to the district as it is constituted now.

(d) For districts that have been split, probe to find the actual district of birth and code the name by which it is currently known.

(e) For persons born outside Kenya, code the country of birth. For example, a person born in Tanzania will be coded "002", Uganda "001", Somalia "004", American countries "096" etc.

(f) Code "888" if district of birth is not known and "999" for not stated

27. Column P18: Birth place

Ask: Where was [the respondent] born?
Birthplace is the usual place of residence of mother at the time of the respondent's birth. This question is meant to establish persons who are not enumerated in their places of birth and hence have migrated. Sometimes expectant mothers move from the rural areas to urban areas for purposes of delivery since maternity services are better at the latter. This kind of movement is short lived and must not be confused with a migratory one. For example, if a woman who usually resides in Ruiru district moves to Nairobi to deliver her child, it will be assumed that the woman went to Nairobi purposely for maternity services. Thus the district of birth of the child will be recorded as Ruiru.

27.1 For persons born in Kenya, code district using the list provided. For example, a person born in Kikuyu district, code "209" and for a person born in Tharaka district, code "414".
