    Abstract

    This manuscript aims to deepen our understanding of poverty in Uganda, by integrating the coun-try’s qualitative and quantitative data, enriching information from one approach with that from the other, and merging the findings from these two approaches into one set of policy recommendations. The results show that this dual approach to poverty analysis enriches the discussion of poverty trends by drawing attention to aspects of poverty and well-being neglected by simple construction of poverty indicators.
