ETHNICITYKE reports the ethnicity of the heads of the household, as reported by the respondent of the household questionnaire, for the Kenya samples. Users should note that the respondent for the household questionnaire was not necessarily the household head.


The household respondent reports the ethnicity of the household head, but the records of all members of the household are assigned the ethnicity of the household head.
