ABSTRACT The purpose of the study was to establish Socio-Economic Status and Family Structures in Uganda utilizing a case study of Rubaga Municipality. The research used both qualitative and quantitative study designs since it was a social-oriented research. The researcher opted for several designs such as the survey design, the exploratory design, and the explanatory design for this study. Under the first objective, it was concluded that fertility rates, individual, capacity, changes in rural areas, polygamy, and policy implications were among the leading factors contributing to changes in family structures in Uganda. In the second objective, it was concluded that; nuclear family, polygamous family, single-parent family, step family, adoptive family, foster family and the child-headed family were the different family structures in Uganda's society. In the third objective, it was concluded that child abuse and domestic violence, alcoholism, drug abuse and teenage pregnancy as well as homelessness and pove1iy and death, divorce and separation in the family were some of the major socio-economic problems faced by families in Uganda. According to the findings and conclusions of the study, the researcher found it is necessary that the recommendations below are of much impOiiance the first and most important recommendation should be through a variety of support programs, such as education and counseling for parents. The government and non-government also must build programmes to give the skill to parents on how to care and teach their children. Community members must be concerned about their neighbor, know their neighbor names and the name of their children.
