Lagos Market Data

List of markets on local government land
In 2013 I managed a survey of Lagos’ local government “market masters,” the title of the revenue collectors who collect local government fees from markets on local government land, and in some cases a few other markets on other types of land. Interviews were achieved for market masters in 55 of the 57 local governments. Each market master was asked to list the markets under her jurisdiction. Here is the list of the 352 markets generated from the survey, with the market master’s estimate for the number of traders, the type of land the market is on, and the main products sold. Accompanying documentation is here. Please cite this data as: Grossman, Shelby. 2016. “List of Markets on Local Government Land in Lagos, Nigeria.”
