Analysis of Participatory Poverty Assessment (PPA) and household survey findings on poverty trends in Uganda

Publication year: 
2000

Analytical work on poverty in Uganda has been undertaken using both quantitative measures and participatory data collection. This is a report of a consultancy carried out to analyze Participatory Poverty Assessment (PPA) and household survey findings on poverty trends in Uganda, particularly to help clarify the picture on poverty trends, identify areas which require further work and any further findings from the analysis which require policy action. Key findings on the relationship between the PPA and household survey results on poverty trends conclude that the two sets of findings have different strengths and can be used to complement each other. Recommendations for future poverty monitoring are made, particularly in terms of using both data sets in complementary fashion to improve monitoring. Some issues for the future development and refinement of pro-poor policies are also raised.
