Showcasing the value of data for the growth of affordable housing
Data on the supply, demand and financing of housing is important for shaping policy and informing the behaviour of market participants. This is critical for Kenya’s affordable housing programme, which seeks to mix private and public sector investment into the housing sector. 

Recent work exploring Kenya’s housing data uncovered a rich landscape of data spanning administrative and survey sources, that could provide valuable insights into the state of Kenya’s housing market.

However, much of this data sits with different curators and is hidden in publications or is yet to be analysed from a housing perspective. As a result, much of Kenya's housing-relevant data remains unused, while analysts and stakeholders spend resources on locating data, leaving less time to engage with the insights it provides across the value chain.

To address this gap, the Kenya National Bureau of Statistics (KNBS) has been collaborating with The Financial Sector Deepening Trust Kenya (FSD Kenya) together with other partners including: the Centre for Affordable Housing Finance in Africa (CAHF), 71point4 and REALL  to develop and pilot a digital platform to provide access to affordable housing data. 

The affordable housing data explorer builds on data opportunities identified from a data landscape study undertaken as part of the Data Agenda for Housing in Africa.

The objective of the data explorer is to provide a platform for a comprehensive and publicly available “one-stop-shop” for key indicators related to housing.
