Population Density

The concept of population density is a measure of population concentration in an area and is derived and divided as a ratio of the total population of a given area to the total land area expressed in square kilometer. The population density in this report is given with reference to persons per square kilometer of land area.Luwero district has become increasingly more densely populated. In 1980 the population density was 86 persons per square kilometer and it increased to 99 persons per square kilometer in 1991. The results of 2002 census show that Luwero had a population density of 132 persons per square kilometer. Figure 3.1 shows the population density of Luwero district by Sub County.

Figure 3.1   MAP OF LUWERO SHOWING POPULATION DENSITY BY SUB COUNTY IN 2002
Source: District Planning Unit
Figure 3.1 shows the population density of Luwero district by sub-county and town councils (Bombo TC, Wobulenzi TC & Bombo TC) are more densely populated than any other sub county with a range of 284-2131 persons per square kilometer followed by Nyimbwa and Sub County with 229-283 persons per square kilometer. This means that population and birth/fertility control measures have to be put into consideration if sustainable development and effective utilization of available resources are to be maximized.

The district has got three gazetted urban centers namely Luwero, Wobulenzi and Bombo Town councils. Table 3.3.1 reveals that a total of 42734 people settled in Luwero town council than in the other two town councils .This could be because Luwero town council is within the district and service delivery is more efficient at the district than in other town councils.

Figure 3.2         Rural – Urban Population Distribution
