CRA BRIEF ON THE SECOND BASIS FOR EQUITABLE SHARING OF REVENUE AMONG THE COUNTY GOVERNMENTS

  3. The Sixth Schedule Section 16 provides for preparation of the first and second basis of sharing revenue be made at three year intervals.
  1. The first formula was approved by the 10th Parliament in November 2012.

C. PARAMETERS AND RATIONALE FOR THEIR CHOICE

Population

  1. Population is a good measure of expenditure needs of a county.
  2. It is a simple, objective and  transparent  measure  that  ensures predictability.
  3. Article 203 (1) (j) provides for stable and predictable allocations of revenues to counties. The population parameter guarantees this predictability  and  also  ensures  equal per  capita  transfers  to  all counties. Besides, use of population in the formula also ensures that counties are able to perform the functions allocated to them.
  4. The data used for this parameter is based on the 2009 population census.
