Using data from the 1989 and 1999 population and housing censuses of Kenya, this paper estimates the total number of intercensal adult deaths due to HIV/AIDS. It also investigates patterns of adult mortality due to HIV/AIDS by age, sex and education level. Results show higher mortality among people with secondary or higher education than those with little or no education. This pattern is true for both men and women. Higher mortality for women than men is observed during the study period. This research is the first to use census data to demonstrate differential mortality due to AIDS by education level in sub-Saharan Africa.
