Title:The localization of small-scale industries in the western state of Nigeria
Author:Olagbaiye, J.A.
Periodical:The Nigerian Geographical Journal
Geographic term:Nigeria
Subjects:small enterprises
industrial location
Abstract:On the basis of the contention that population centres, notably urban locations, constitute the most fundamental factor in the pattern of industrial localization in an underdeveloped country, the author specifies four generalizations as far as the localization pattern of small-scale industries is concerned: 1. population size; 2. employment structure; 3. favourable site and situational characteristics; 4. local conditions. This paper examines the extent to which the foregoing principles apply in the case of small-scale industrial localization in the Western State of Nigeria. The data for the study are taken from 'Small-scale Industries: Western State of Nigeria', by The Industrial Research Unit (Ife, 1972). Ref., tables, figure.
