Population Growth And Employment In Uganda (1991-2014).

ABSTRACT

The research was interested in finding out the relationship of population growth and employment

in Uganda from 1991 to 2014. The study objectives were; to establish the level of population

growth in Uganda from 1991 to 2014, to determine the level of employment of Uganda from

1991 to 2014, and to find out the relationship between population growth and employment in

Uganda from 1991 to 2014. However, the research hypothesis was that there is a significant

relationship between population growth and employment in Uganda. Analysis such as

Correlation, regression analysis mechanisms was used, the sample size was a time series data

from 1991 to 2014, indicating that the number of sample was eleven and the secondary data

collected were entered in the record sheet and edited before analysis. The research revealed that

the level of population growth was showing a rapid increase meanwhile and employment also

showed a general increase for the period under studied from 1991 to 2014. Using the correlation,

regression approach, there was a strong positive correlation between population growth and

employment (r 0.92), also there was a relationship between population growth and

employment at 0.05 level of significance. In conclusion therefore, population growth and

employment showed a general increase for the period under study, there was a strong positive

correlation between population growth and employment and their relationship was found to be at

0.05 level of significance. The null hypothesis that there is no significant relationship among

population and unemployment was rejected, concluding that there is relationship between the

population growth and employment, implying that population growth effects employment, which

means the population growth influenced or contributed 84% of the unemployment. The

Researcher recommended the government to bring Population policies that geared to reducing

population to sizeable. The researchers also recommend the government to encourage self employment through mechanization and modernization.
