The Nigerian Bureau of Statistics recently released a comprehensive list of JAMB applications by Geopolitical regions / States of origin, covering a period of 7 years from (2010-2016).
What the statistics showed has been quite revealing. Figures compiled from the NBS Showed that the South West region led in the total number of Applications with 2,646,731 representing some 22.85% of all applications from the country. The South East region followed with 2,593,265 applications or 22.32% followed in turn by the South South Zone with 2,407,902 applications or 20.73%.

In the Northern region of the country, the North Central region led and was more similar to the south than to the North in terms of figures, with 2,005,319 Applications or 17.22%. The North West managed 1,210,545 or 10.41% over the six year period under review, while the North East region had the least applications with 726,000 representing some 6.23% of applications in the country.

Further analysis revealed that the South-West region led in Four of the Seven years: 2010 (24.88%), 2011 (23.33%), 2015 (22.80%), and 2016 (22.80%) - While the South East led in Three: 2012 (23.07%), 2013 (22.37%) and 2014 (22.38%).
Figures also show that the North-West and North-East have been steadily improving on their total number of candidate applications and percentage share of total national figures from 2010 where they accounted for 8.48% and 4.54% respectively to 2016 where they accounted for 12.52% and 7.65%.

Visualizations of the statistics are presented below.










Ranking of Geopolitical regions by Applications numbers | % of National Figures

1 - South West - 2,646,731 | 22.85%

2 - South East - 2,593,265 | 22.32%

3 - South South - 2,407,902 | 20.73%

4 - North Central - 2,005,319 | 17.22%

5 - North West - 1,210,545 | 10.41%

6 - North East - 726,000 | 6.23%



http://www.nigerianstat.gov.ng/report/517

Regional scrutinization of the figures shows that Oyo state led the pack in the South-West, closely followed by Osun and Ogun. Imo state led in the Southeast by a large margin, followed by Anambra and Enugu.
In the North-central, Kogi state led followed closely by Benue and Kwara. In the North-West, Kaduna led, followed by Kano and Katsina trailing in a distant third position, while in the Northeast, Taraba state led, followed by Adamawa and then Gombe.

Nationally, the top 15 states were: Imo, Delta, Oyo, Osun, Anambra, Edo, Ogun, Enugu, Kogi, Ondo, Akwa Ibom, Benue, Kwara, Kaduna and Abia- in that order.
Surprisingly, very populated states like Rivers, Kano and Lagos did not rank in the top 15, with Kano the most populated state in the country ranking at 17th- only one place above Ekiti the 30th most populated state in the country but which was seated far (12 places) higher than its population position rank would suggest, at 18th position.

Let this thread serve the purpose of posterity, verification, and referral, that every Man, woman, and child citizen of Nairaland would refer their friends, business and leisure partners, as well as acquaintances for the proper verification of data before unverified myths, start flying around about National Education statistics.

Shalom. cheesy

ChetaNwaeze:
The Yoruba's owe the memory of Chief Obafemi Awolowo and Tai Solarin a whole load of gratitude for making them head starters educationally. We Igbos are also trying but we can never catch up with the great Yoruba race because the Yoruba'as are a thousand years civilisation ahead of we Igbos

lol... Competition is good bro.
But it seems the Yorubas will always be a tad bit ahead of the game.

Ok it seems the stats reflect the general sentiment about North vs South dichotomy in this nation. The poverty stats yesterday say what we general know now education seem to reflect the same. As percentage of population students in north school less.

Now to the Statistics about Admission rates.
Some people from a corner of the country demanded that they wanted to see it.
2016 Acceptance rate statistics not yet Available.

For all you MUMUS that keep quoting me even into page 10 and beyond- I don't know how many times you want me to say it, but these are based on region and states of ORIGIN not region of residences. So many thick people around here.




For the Southern regions:

South West - 28.42% Acceptance = 746,643 Students
South East - 25.47% Acceptance = 641,537 Students
South South - 24.98% Acceptance = 579,758 Students

Nrth Central.

I told those mumus that more Yoruba youth were entering universities than Igbos, they were yarning okpata to me.
Even the SW states have a higher admission rate than any zone in the South. The only states that have a higher admission rate are those designated as educationally disadvantaged states, that have reserved spots, for the sake of equity.

If Kwara state was in the South East, it would rank ahead of Abia, a state with more people.... now isn't that a shocker?

The stats are up there staring at you potopoto boy yet you still have the guts to yap this nonsense . The number of states is irrelevant cos they used state of origin. By the way, you aren't fooling anyone with that Yoruba moniker. Your post history will always cast you lol

And yes y'all are ahead when it comes to importing and exporting salt to Indonesia grin
