Determinants of Occupational Choice in Nigeria: A Multinomial Logit Model


 It has been observed that for almost three decades following the introduction of Structural Adjustment Programme (SAP) in Nigeria, efforts by the government to set in motion private sector driven economy had not yielded much. There is also much disparity between labour force and employment. This study therefore uses the Multinomial Logit Estimation Techniques to investigate the determinants of occupational choice, and possible gender influence on choice using the 2008 Nigeria Household Survey (NHHS) data set. The aim of this study, therefore, is to achieve effective labour utilization and robust labour related economic policy guide in Nigeria by adopting the result findings. The study finds among other things that whereas individuals at all levels of education prefer wage employment at the public and private sectors, those with low education especially at the primary and secondary school levels appear to be predisposed for self-employment relative to those at the other levels. At the primary school level 40.5% of individuals prefer to be self-employed, while at the secondary, college of education, university (1st degree), and beyond 1st degree level, 17.1%, 8.6%, 3.7%, and 0% were recorded respectively. Another important finding is that male workers earn on the average more than female workers by 24.2% and 6.3%, in self-employment and public sector employment respectively, while females earn on the average earn more than males by 11.7% in the private sector. The study shows that there is no significant gender difference in the choice of employment in Nigeria; however, differences in domestic and socio-cultural divide between the sexes seem to be instrumental to differences in labour mobility, earning differential, and the seeming apathy of being self-employed by females. Females are also less likely to choose the private sector employment relative to males.
