Uganda Population Stands at 37M


Uganda’s population has hit 37.7 million people according to final results released by the Uganda bureau of statistics from the 2014 national population and housing census. UBOS executive director Ben Paul Mungyereza says the numbers are worrying especially at a time when unemployment is high yet the economy is growing at a slow rate of just 3.5 percent. However UBOS projects that the population will reach 46.4 million people in 2024.
