The Uganda Bureau of Statistics (UBOS) released the first Multidimensional Poverty Index (MPI) report for Uganda in July 2022. The report was produced in partnership with OPHI and UNDP. The Ugandan MPI is based on the 2016/17 and 2019/20 Uganda National Household Surveys and aims to broaden the measurement of poverty in Uganda, to Leave No One Behind, and achieve Sustainable Development Goal 1: End poverty in all its forms everywhere. It will be used to design and monitor the country’s plans and programmes, as a complement to monetary poverty measures.
