Pardee Institute research was featured on the front page of Uganda’s Daily Monitor on Sunday, January 21. The article highlights our recent report with the USAID/Uganda Monitoring, Learning, and Evaluation Contract, Estimating District GDP in Uganda. Using nighttime lights imagery to estimate the size of Uganda’s 116 district economies, the research provides the foundation for exploring poverty and income distribution at a finer spatial resolution than previously existed. The report was produced by by Jonathan D. Moyer and Mickey Rafa of the Pardee Institute, in close collaboration with PhD candidate Tony Wang and Professor Paul Sutton of the Geography Department at DU, as well as with researchers at USAID/Uganda Monitoring, Learning, and Evaluation Contract.
