~sn~a This research was based on examining the relationship between inflation and unemplo) nn iii rates in Uganda from 2000 -2012. It was guided by three objectives which included establishing the lcvcl of inflation rate in Uganda, determination of unemployment rate in Uganda and investigating the relationship between inflation unemployment rates in Uganda between 200-2012. The study was based on quantitative research approach employing the correlation and regression designs. The findings indicate that inflation rates in the period of 2000 to 20012 ha~e bees’ majorly increasing with limited stagnations over some years. The prevalence especiall) in ri 2007 to 2011 portray a worsening economic performance since normal inflation needs to be kent at a single digit Concerning the results on Unemployment rate in Uganda, the researcher observes that there v~as a reduction in Unemployment rate from 2000 to 2002.The rate of unemployment was further seen increasing with a final stagnation in 2009 to 2012. Results on the relationship between inflation rate and unemployment from 2002 to 2012 in Uganda presented a correlation value of 0.059 that is slightl) higher than the levels of significance (0.05) which indicate that there was no significant relationship between inllatiin rate and unemployment rate. The ANOVA value of r. 4.416 is larger than the ~aluc Oh’ significance, 0.059. Therefore, the null hypothesis is accepted. This means that there is no an~ correlation between inflation rate and unemployment rate in Uganda under the period of 2000 to 2012.
