In Uganda, a team of enumerators administered Progress out of Poverty Index (PPI) interviews in 56 villages to 166 SILC groups. In total, 4,079 SILC group members were interviewed. In the same, or near-by, villages 924 PPI interviews were also administered. When comparing the SILC group members to the reference, the data show that the SILC group members were poorer. When performing a village-by-village comparison, the researchers found that 59% of the SILC group members in Uganda came from the poorer half of their community.
