The Lagos Trader Survey (with Meredith Startz) Supported by: The Centre for Economic Policy Research and Economic Development and Institutions

The Lagos Trader Survey is a representative survey of 1,400 traders in physical markets or plazas (multi-story buildings) in Lagos, Nigeria. The survey asked questions about transactions, travel, market organization, and politics. Traders were sampled from an original listing of 52,193 shops in Lagos. The first round of the survey was conducted in the summer of 2015, the second round in the spring of 2016, the third round in fall 2018, and the fourth round between 2020 and 2021.
