Abstract

The problems of housing in Nigeria are enormous and complex, exhibiting apparent and marked regional differences. In most urban centres, the problem is not only restricted to quantity but also to the quality of available housing units and the environment. This study therefore evaluated the building performance of State Subsidized Housing Schemes in Ogun State and ascertained whether or not the public housing estates fulfil the initial design/goal of government and the needs of the users with regard to the occupants` satisfaction. The objectives of the study were to examine housing delivery process, evaluate the physical characteristics and conditions of the housing units, examine the socio-economic characteristics of the residents, ascertain factors which influence levels of residents’ expectations and satisfaction with the housing estates and compare the occupants` expectations of the housing units, with their housing experience in the estates. The study obtained both primary and secondary data. Qualitative data was obtained from key management staff of (OPIC) by means of in-depth interview. Quantitative data was obtained through administration of questionnaires on 716 housing units based on purposeful sampling of ten existing low-income housing estates spread across the State. Descriptive and inferential techniques were used for the analysis.The result of study showed a positive and significant correlation between age range (r=0.397), marital status (r=0.297), and household size (r=0.189), however, Socio economic status (r=-0.275), educational attainment (r=-0.213) and ownership status (r= -0.285) had negative, but significant correlations at 0.05 level of significance. The study concluded that most residents found their housing units satisfactory but at different levels of satisfaction based on the age, length of residency, marital status and educational level. It is thus recommended that public agencies for low-income housing should pay proper attention to the management of support and public facilities to enhance residential satisfaction of the inhabitants and also adopt a policy to build different sizes of units to cater for the needs of the residents with large families in order to enhance quality of life of the low-income urban community in the country.
