Data on Life expectancy and GDP per capita growth in Uganda from 1988 to 2015 24

ABSTRACT This research investigated the effect of Life expectancy on Economic growth in Uganda from 1988 to 2015. Using simple regression analysis, my objectives were; to investigate the effect of life expectancy on Uganda’s economic growth, to investigate the relationship between life expectancy and economic growth in Uganda and to find out the average life expectancy in Uganda. Results showed that there was an insignificant effect between Life expectancy and Economic growth in Uganda for the selected scope of study (1988 —2015) basing on the F value of 0.576 implying that the overall model is insignificant at 10% level of significance and at 5%. The coefficient of determination, R2 = 0.022, implying that Life expectancy explains 2.2% variations in Economic growth, meaning that 97.8% variations in Economic growth are explained by the intervening variables that is availability of natural resources, government policies, investment level and political climate. I recommended that Life expectancy should not be considered as a major factor in determining Economic growth figures
