In response to a request from the Ugandan authorities and in consultation with the African Department (AFR), I undertook a technical assistance (TA) mission to Kampala during January 18-29, 2016 to assist with the further development of estimates of quarterly Gross domestic product (GDP) for expenditure components, and to initiate the development of production accounts for main institutional sectors.
The Uganda Bureau of Statistics (UBOS) is responsible for producing the National Accounts Statistics governed by the Uganda Bureau of Statistics Act 1998. The institution produces annual GDP estimates by activity and expenditure at current and constant prices. Quarterly GDP by activity are also compiled at constant and current prices. No expenditure estimates of GDP are compiled on a quarterly basis.
