The size of the sample has been expanded over time as the number of “Other enterprises” increased. In 1992/93, the sample covered 8 PEs; the size was increased to 14 in 1993/94, to 20 in 1994/95, to 40 in 1995/96 and 1996/97, and to 41 in 1997/98.
The only exception was 1995/1996, when net subsidies to “Other enterprises” represented 41.6 percent of total net subsidies to PEs. This was largely attributed to a cash equity injection provided by the government to recapitalize the Uganda Development Bank (UDB) equal to 7 percent of total net subsidies to PEs.
The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), Kakira Sugar Works Ltd. (Kakira), and Kinyara Sugar Works Ltd. (Kinyara).
In April 1998, the government sold 49 percent of its shares in the UCB. However, after revelations of malpractice, the government moved in early 1999 to repossess its UCB shares.
In 1995/96 and 1996/97, this subsidy was not present because the project was largely unimplemented.
In small towns, services are provided by the Directorate of Water Development. The service level has traditionally been below 50 percent, and sources of safe water range from protected springs, gravity flow schemes, wells, handpumps, and powered boreholes.
