This paper focuses on public spending in education in Uganda. In particular, we investigate the extent to which public spending/provision in the education sector has been pro-poor. The analysis draws for a large part on the Uganda National Household Survey of 2009/10 (UNHS IV). The survey is nationally representative and is conducted after every four year span. The survey has four core modules administered to all sampled households. The socio economic module collects basic social indicators including household individual particulars, education and household consumption expenditure. Three additional modules (market, community and the informal sector) are also administered to the same households. Data from the socio-economic module for specific sections is used.
