Early labour market transitions of young women in Uganda

Poor educational attainment, early marriages, low age at first birth, and poor labour market outcomes continue to be of concern for young women in Uganda.

Using the School to Work Transition Surveys (SWTS 2013 and 2015) and the Demographic and Health Surveys (2006 and 2011) for Uganda, this paper descriptively explores links between educational attainment, age of marriage and child-birth and labour market outcomes for young people (15-24 years of age)
