The Kenya National Bureau of Statistics released the census report on Monday at State House Nairobi, where it was presented to President Uhuru Kenyatta.

According to the report the most populous counties are the capital Nairobi, Kiambu, Nakuru, Kakamega, Bungoma and Kilifi.

The intersex population stands at 1,524.

The average household size declined to 3.9 per cent in 2019 compared to 4.2 per cent as per the 2009 population results.

The outcome will be used by the government in distributing its resources countrywide.

President Uhuru Kenyatta received the data results, lauding the team for ending the exercise within three months since it was concluded.
