b) Poor record keeping at school level This has been a big source of errors of origin at school level. The Ministry has made deliberate efforts to enhance the use of standardised school registers. It is being spearheaded by the relevant technical department (Pre primary and Primary department) with input from Education Planning department. Capacity building especially in schools records management has improved the overall compiling and reporting of information by the head teachers. 98

99 EDUCATION STATISTICAL ABSTRACT 2011 Intervention Monitoring/Inspection In 2005 government allowed flexibility of up to 5% of the recurrent conditional UPE capitation grant to be used on inspection. This enabled districts to make visits to schools periodically to ascertain schools populations/attendances as compared to monthly reports on enrolments filed by head teachers. This facilitation has made the local governments control/regulate good practices in schools under their immediate jurisdiction. c) Population projections Population projections were initially based on 1991 population census which was using modules designed for other demographic considerations at variance with Uganda. This led to improper projection of school going age children over years. Intervention A task force between UBOS and MOES technical officers was constituted to overcome that problem after the 2002 National Population and Housing Census which meets once in a month. The ministry has now reliable projections for period running from 2002 2017 with single age by district. d) Conclusion We have made an attempt to create backward linkage between data users and providers as away of getting the feedback from the later. Emphasis has also been put in sensitization of the main producers of row data to appreciate the importance of providing accurate age data. All local governments are called upon to monitor the performance indicators in their districts and take necessary action to improve them.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
