Mwea Irrigation Scheme having been formed as early as 1956, the project studies the current distribution of Gross family income in the sections of Mwea Irrigation Scheme accounting for individual's characteristics of the persons. Different kinds of HLM models were used to get a deeper understanding of the variations in Gross family income both within and across the sections that constitute Mwea Irrigation Scheme. The significant findings of the project were that; there was non-significant difference in Gross family income between the individuals within and across the sections with respect to the effects of the measured individual's characteristics under study. The study found a significant difference in Gross family income distribution across the sections. Subject to our discussion, the research findings suggests that there are other factors other than the ones analyzed in this study that result into sectional differences in Gross family income and hence a need to perform further research. Key Words: Hierarchical Linear models.
