oa East African Geographical Review - Regional aspects of the 1969 Uganda census



Starting on the 18th of August 1969, the third complete Census of Uganda was carried out. The enumeration proceeded well, and was completed in four days, less than time expected, due to a sufficient number of enumerators and a cooperative population. The success was aided greatly by the declaration of a curfew on Census night. All places of public entertainment were closed, and special passes issued to employees in essential services and others who needed to be out on census night. Consequently, the Census was completed overnight in all towns and urban areas, and in the areas along Lake Victoria where the population is dense and highly mobile. As a result, it is felt that the 1969 Census is probably the most complete of the series of three that was started in 1948.
