Abstract

The study assessed the impact of Industrial Development Centres (IDCs) on employment generation by small-scale businesses in Nigeria .The study was designed primarily to determine whether or not the generation of employment of small-scale beneficiaries of the IDCs increased significantly after obtaining IDCs’ services. The study indicated that the services offered by many (66.7%) of the IDCs led to significant increase in employment generation by large number of beneficiary small- scale businesses at 1% level but at 5% level the services offered by many (66.7%) IDCs did not lead to significant increase in employment generation by large number of small-scale beneficiaries. The study also indicated that there were significant differences among the IDCs regarding changes in employment generated by their beneficiary small-scale businesses after receiving services. Key words: Small-Scale, Businesses, Employment, Generation, Beneficiaries.
