THE NATIONAL SURVEY REPORT ON CORRUPTION AND ETHICS, 2015
Demand for national-level data on corruption and governance continues to grow, especially for data that allow in-depth analysis that can inform policy development. Therefore, the EACC 2015 National Ethics and Corruption Survey focused on aspects of corruption and unethical behavior including anti-corruption measures with a view to providing policy and strategy direction in the fight against corruption.
The Survey Report presents perceptions and actual experiences on levels, magnitude, awareness, practices, reporting and sensitization of corruption and ethics. In certain sections, the findings have been compared with previous surveys.
The Survey used a variety of methods including: a representative nation-wide household sample of about 5,260 households drawn from 46 Counties with the exception of Mandera. However, there were respondents who sought services from Mandera County but were interviewed in other counties. 10 key informant interviews; and review of similar previous surveys. Data collection was carried out by six teams of 3-4 Research Assistants each from 23rd August to 23rd October 2015.
Data on the perception indicator from 2015 survey suggests that the level of corruption rose to 73.9% up from 67.9% from the 2012 survey. But it also show number of bribes have gone down . One of the findings is that only a paltry 5.7% of respondents reported corrupt acts, which demonstrates that most Kenyans do not regard fighting as their responsibility.
