From the introduction:

This chapter explores the phenomenon of migration by youths and the association with employment together with policy interventions that the government of Uganda has put in place. Statistical analysis of primary data is used from a cross sectional survey taken from a multidisciplinary study of youth employment and migration dynamics in Eastern and Southern Africa, which was carried out in Kenya, Malawi, Uganda and Zambia. The data collection was done at different times in different countries and this study utilizes data from Uganda. The study was a two-year study conducted between March 2017 and March 2019. For the purposes of this chapter, the Uganda data is used from 1,537 youths aged 18-35 sampled in the survey. In view of country and international variations in defining youth, the study used a definition that considered national interests while at the same being mindful of international frameworks. This definition took a broad age range, such as that of the Africa Charter, which defines youths as being persons aged 15-35 (With this definition, youths in a country such as Uganda who are taken to be persons aged 18-30 would be covered). The definition of a migrant in this study took a mixed / hybrid approach regarding the identification of migrants (and avoided taking a mutually exclusive position on sending or receiving households). On sampling size and weighting, we considered oversampling to take care of uniqueness (such as households headed by a woman or child). We also considered purposive sampling with regard to other attributes such as National Capital.
