Percentage of population below poverty line

According to the survey on poverty carried out by UBOS in 2005, on average Luwero was found out to have 30 percent of it is population living below the poverty line, which is lower than the National average of 31 percent. However, Kamira Sub County had the highest poverty rate of 32 percent followed by Kikyusa at 26 percent, while Wobulenzi Town council had the lowest poverty rate at 4 percent. The most probable reason for Kamira having the highest poverty rate could be due to the fact that the area is dry and crop production becomes hard since it’s a cattle corridor.. All Town councils have a poverty rate of less than 8 percent. Table 3.13 shows the poverty rates of the different sub counties with Luwero district.
