The Uganda Business Climate Index (BCI) reflects the perceptions of Ugandan business executives on the current and expected business economic conditions. The BCI is intended to be an indicator of economic activity, to supplement official statistics.

The BCI is a composite perception index based on the following indicators: level of business activity, turnover, profitability, incoming new business, capacity utilization, average costs for inputs, prices of produced goods, new orders for goods, business optimism, and number of employees. The Index is interpreted as follows: a negative value indicates deterioration and a positive value indicates improvement in the general business conditions.
