By 2016, the time of Museveni’s declaration, Uganda’s GNI per capita was USD 790, a 4.2 per cent decline from the status in 2015. It declined further to USD 740 in 2017, before going up to USD 750 in 2018 and USD 780 in 2019, according to macrotrends, a premier research platform for long term investors. The GNI per capita is the dollar value of a country's final income in a year, divided by its mid-year population.
