KNBS Census Jobs 2019

The Jobs will be available in July 2019


The Kenya National Bureau of Statistics (KNBS) through the Ministry of State for Planning, National Development, and Vision 2030 is embarking on the 2019 census to determine the national population under the Statistics Act of 2006.

The Kenyan Census is one of the most intensive state jobs that requires a lot of manpower to do the counting. As such, it is expected that there will be openings for census jobs.

While this is a much-anticipated opportunity for many unemployed Kenyans, it should be noted that the Bureau has not yet announced any job openings.

As such, people should remain vigilant of conmen on social media and the internet asking Kenyans for money so they can be given the jobs. KNBS has not announced any census jobs yet.

Statement from KNBS on 2019 Census Jobs

In response to the rumours. The body mandated with conducting the census in Kenya sent out a tweet. It cautioned on the rumour going around social media.

KNBS was categorical on the matter and asked all Kenyans to be on the lookout for such Fake adverts.
