Leveraging A2F 2018 Surveys

Approach & Methodology

  • The size of the participants included in each of the survey prior to 2018 A2F was 24,000 with a proportional representation across states.
  • Nationally representative sample of Nigerian adults (18+) across all 36 states and FCT Abuja
  • Results are weighted by the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) to provide for the total adult population and benchmarked to national population estimates for verification


Objectives of A2F 2018 Survey

  • To describe the levels of financial inclusion (i.e. levels of access to financial products and services – both formal and informal)
  • To describe the landscape of access (i.e. the type of products and services used by financially included individuals)
  • To identify the drivers of, and barriers to financial access
  • To stimulate evidence-based dialogue that will ultimately lead to effective public and private sector interventions that will increase and deepen financial inclusion
  • To track financial inclusion trends in Nigeria and also to provide an assessment of changes due to interventions to enhance access and deepen inclusion
