The National Information Technology Authority (NITA-U), with funding from the government of Uganda, conducted the National Information Technology (IT) Survey 2022 to provide data and information that informs and supports the monitoring of national development policies and international frameworks related to information technology (IT).
This third edition of the National IT Survey provides information on a wide range of indicators covering government ministries, departments, and agencies (MDAs); local governments (LGs); and households and individuals as well as businesses.
This survey showed that significant progress has been achieved in terms of the overall penetration and utilization of IT services. However, the unequal access to and use of such services across the country remain a major challenge, with especially rural-urban-, gender-and income-based divides (that relate to the affordability of service) remaining as challenges. Gaps also exist at the sub-regional levels.
Given these findings, the government needs to double down on programs and policies designed to improve access and affordability to achieve the level of digital inclusion expected under the Sustainable Development Goals.
