Locations of Kenya

Locations are a type of administrative region in Kenya. Location are a third level subdivision below Counties and Sub-Counties. Locations are further subdivided into Sub-locations.[1] At the 1999 census there were 2,427 locations and 6,612 sublocations in Kenya.[2]

Each division in Kenya is divided into some locations. Locations do often, but not necessarily, coincide with electoral wards. Locations are usually named after their central villages/towns. Many larger towns consist of several locations.

Each location has a chief, appointed by the state.
