Kampala informal sector survey

Primary tabs

In order to support the development of an economic development strategy for the Greater Kampala metro region, an informal sector survey was undertaken between June 2016 and June 2017 to provide policymakers with analytical information on the prominent sectors within the city. The survey was designed to produce representative estimates for key indicators of the greater Kampala as a whole. The informal sector module of the National Manpower Survey (NMPS) implemented by UBOS was extended to include questions on household-based enterprises. The module focuses on skill levels, remuneration, training and working conditions of those in the informal sector. The survey interviewed 2,243 informal businesses, randomly drawn based on a two-stage stratified sample.
