    • Millions of British pounds /then/ millions of Kenya shillings (Mil. GBP/KES)
  • Adjustment: Not applicable
  • Geo coverage: Country
  • Native frequency: Annual
  • Start date: 1946 or 1959

The employment series reside in the historical catalog (Kenya » Labor and Wages » Employment | Earnings) and are:

  • LWQEMTUA.IKEN = Employment - Both sexes, (Ths. #)
