SOURCES: For 1950-51 estimates: A. P. Prest and I. G. Stewart: The National Income
of Nigeria, 1950-51
( London: H. M. Stationery Office, 1953). The 1952-53 esti-
mates were prepared at the request of the mission by the Department of Statis-
tics of the Nigerian Government on the basis of information of price and quantity
changes of goods and services produced in Nigeria. They therefore do not rep-
resent new estimates but merely an attempt to bring the earlier estimates up to
date. The valuable assistance of Miss J. Tyrrell is gratefully acknowledged. For
information on the computation of the 1950-51 data and the reliability of the
estimates, see Prest and Stewart, op. cit.
