Abstract



This study empirically analyzed the household energy demand in the North-East Zone of Nigeria. Secondary data was obtained from NBS on general household survey (2013) and AIDS model was employed on the data collected. The results revealed that all the energy sources considered were comfort goods (had elasticities=1) except for kerosene which was found to be a necessity (elasticity<1). Also, all the energy sources were price elastic (elasticities=1) and had a complementary relationship (negative elasticities). The study therefore, recommended policy to improve LPG and electricity demand by supplying it at subsidized rate to households.
