This study was conducted by the Uganda Bureau of Statistics (UBOS) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), and sheds light on Uganda’s achievements and challenges with regard to data for measuring Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 16. The SDG 16 Data Gap Analysis is a systematic review of availability and suitability of data for SDG 16 indicators in Uganda. Overall, the study finds that Uganda performed well in most of the SDG 16 indicators. At the same time, efforts are required for improving the remaining SDG 16 indicators. These include, for example, filling data gaps observed for some of the SDG 16 indicators that are partly or mostly available, which makes tracking progress a challenge. These indicators include but are not limited to SDG 16.1.3 on victims of violence and SDG 16.3.1 on underreporting of violence. This requires strengthening the capacity of data producers and suppliers in the National Statistical System.
