The National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) in Nigeria compiles statistics on housing, building and construction but they don’t have data on building floor areas and total valuation of plan approvals. Individual states and municipalities might have this data in their respective building departments but it’s either not collected nor measured. In this case, estimates can be obtained from alternative sources in the private sector. Quantity surveyors, architects, major building contractors and property developers are well placed to provide building costs on various types of properties such as residential dwellings and commercial facilities.

This residential building cost survey based on Jiji Properties looks at 12 types of residential dwellings – the cost of building a duplex, bungalow, flats, apartments, single-family house, maisonette, mansion, mini-flat, penthouse, villa, townhouse/terrace house and studio apartment. The survey covers 34 states in Nigeria, but significant samples were taken in the states of Abuja (FCT), Lagos, Ogun, Rivers State, Abia, Akwa Ibom, Anambra, Cross River, Delta, Edo, Ekiti, Enugu, Imo, Kaduna, Kwara, Ondo and Osun. The size of the sample ranges from 91 to 14,002 dwellings.
