Is there an inverse correlation between electricity consumption and size of population?


Dear UAH and Prof. Kamuntu,
Is there an inverse correlation between electricity consumption and size of population?  Then Uganda would be popolluted!
Below are two global tables showing data on population density and energy consumption per capita .
Britain’s per capita consumption of power is 5773 KWh per person, Uganda is at 30 KWh.  Uganda and Britain are about the same land area..  If we base population size on electricity consumption, Uganda’s population should be about 192 times that of Britain, i.e., 11.7 Billion.  However, Uganda’s population is about half of that of Britain..  As you can see, Uganda’s population density is 120 persons per sqkm, that of Britain is 246.
How do you explain that discrepancy, ‘in light’ of your new hypothesis on ‘shots in the dark’, Professor Kamuntu?
Also, another Professor told me that, Infant Mortality Rate is the number of infantry soldiers that die in any given battle.  Did he tell me the truth?
