The study objectives were; to establish the level of population growth in Uganda from 1991 to 2014, to determine the level of employment of Uganda from 1991 to 2014, and to find out the relationship between population growth and employment in Uganda from 1991 to 2014. However, the research hypothesis was that there is a significant relationship between population growth and employment in Uganda. Analysis such as Correlation, regression analysis mechanisms was used, the sample size was a time series data from 1991 to 2014, indicating that the number of sample was eleven and the secondary data collected were entered in the record sheet and edited before analysis. The research revealed that the level of population growth was showing a rapid increase meanwhile and employment also showed a general increase for the period under studied from 1991 to 2014. Using the correlation, regression approach, there was a strong positive correlation between population growth and employment (r 0.92), also there was a relationship between population growth and employment at 0.05 level of significance. In conclusion therefore, population growth and employment showed a general increase for the period under study, there was a strong positive correlation between population growth and employment and their relationship was found to be at 0.05 level of significance. The null hypothesis that there is no significant relationship among population and unemployment was rejected, concluding that there is relationship between the population growth and employment, implying that population growth effects employment, which means the population growth influenced or contributed 84% of the unemployment. The Researcher recommended the government to bring Population policies that geared to reducing population to sizable.
