This interactive map functions as a calculator, showing how the Kenyan national government is currently allocating resources to the different county governments and allows user to explore the potential impact of changes to the allocation criteria. By selecting alternative weights for the various parameters (using the sliders along the bottom of the map), users can see how allocations will change and vary across the counties. By using the slider on the right side, users can also view the impact of greater revenues being divided among the counties—a popular idea among some policymakers and legislators in Kenya.
