    Abstract: Kenya is one of the countries in the world with a good quantity of wind. This makes the country to work on technologies that can help in harnessing the wind with a vision of achieving a total capacity of 2GW of wind energy by 2030. The objective of this research is to find the best three-parameter wind speed distribution for examining wind speed us... Show More

    Abstract: Sample survey provides reliable current statistics for large areas or sub-population (domains) with large sample sizes. There is a growing demand for reliable small area statistics, however, the sample sizes are too small to provide direct (or area specific) estimators with acceptable and reliable accuracy. This study gives theoretical description ... Show More
