This article presents the main results of the Central Bank of Nigeria's surveys of foreign private investment in Nigeria in 1976 and 1977. The surveys were conducted through a questionnaire sent to companies in which the capital was wholly or partly owned by foreigners. 768 and 1.160 companies were contacted for the 1976 and 1977 surveys- respectively- and the response rates were 75 3 and 57 2 per cent respectively. All the 49 large companies included in the survey for each of the two years responded in full to the inquiry and the results of the small companies were adjusted for non-response.
