Poverty in West Nile

Despite an overall reduction in poverty for the country since 1992, most regions in Northern Uganda continue to lag behind. According to the Uganda Demographic and Health Survey (2011), poverty is more concentrated in the north with 90 percent of the population in Kampala falling in the highest quintile of wealth, compared to 33 percent in West Nile and Acholi and Lango (Acholi and Lango sub-regions are sometimes referred to as North).
