ABSTRACT

This study summarizes all five chapters in this report about labor force participation rates and

economic growth rate in Uganda (2005-20 15) .Chapter one presents the background to the study,

problem statement, purpose of study, Research Objectives, and questions, study hypothesis,

study scope, significance and operational definitions Labor Force Participation Rate means the

number of persons in the labor force expressed as a percentage of the working-age.

Literature on the area of study was done in line with the study objectives to gain deep insight into

the concepts under investigation. Chapter three presents the research design, population size,

sampling technique, research instrument, data collection procedure and source, and method of

data analysis. The research also used to correlate the two variables to find the Pearson coefficient

and Coefficient of determination to find the strength of relationship for the labor force

participation rate and economic growth (GDP) in Uganda from 2005 to 2015. Chapter four

presents’ data using figures and graphs based on the research objectives and the corresponding

research questions, testing the hypothesis and for implication of the findings. (i) To establish the

trend of Labor force participation rate in Uganda (2005-2015), (ii) To establish the trend of GDP

Growth Rate in Uganda (2005 to 2015), (iii)To investigate the relationship between Labor force

participation rate and GDP Growth Rate in Uganda (2005 to 2015). In the conclusion there fore

relationship between Labour Force Participation Rate and GDP growth rate has been significant

relationship according to the fitted line. Regression analysis, correlation, the use of parametric

test were performed and found that a strong positive correlation between Labour Force

Participation Rate and GDP growth rate is statistically significant.
