    Abstract

    The study examines the determinants of households’ residential district preferences within the metropolitan city of Ibadan. Variables considered as determinants, based on households’ survey and used for appraisal in this study include quality of the environment in terms of good layout, availability of infrastructural facilities like good roads, water supply, quietness, peace and adequate security etc; socio-cultural activities; accessibility to place of work; mere chance- like occupying the only vacant place/ plot; security of land ownership; and affinity to place of birth / need to live close to relatives. The analysis is based on statistical estimation and conclusions are based on the results obtained from these estimations. Our findings indicate that different category of residential density district of the city has distinct set of households’ residential districts preferences peculiar to it, hence broad generalizations for the whole city could be erroneous.
