Kenya’s unemployment rate in 2022 as of January 2023
In 2022, Kenya had a 5.5 percent unemployment rate. From the rise following the financial crisis, this shows a consistent drop.
Who is unemployed?
The percentage of people who want to work but can’t find employment is referred to as a country’s unemployment rate. This comprises employees who have lost their jobs and are looking for new ones, employees whose employment terminated as a result of the economic crisis, and employees for whom there are no jobs because there is a labor shortage in their sector of the economy. The causes of the overall unemployment rate are indicated by various statistics.
The Kenyan setting
The so-called “search unemployment” category, which is the first kind, is the most difficult to identify in the data.
