The cross-sectional survey design was adopted while multi-stage sampling technique was used. All the localities in each state capital of South-western Nigeria were identified and three localities were randomly selected. A structured questionnaire focusing on socio-economic characteristics (sex, age, income) and involvement in housing development was administered to the household-head in the selected residential buildings. Quantitative data were analysed using descriptive statistics, One-way Analysis of Variance and Chi-Square at p&le;0.05 while qualitative data were content analysed. The ages of respondents were 34.46&plusmn;10.23 (male) and 37&plusmn;3 (female) years respectively. Males constituted 72.8% of respondents. Building construction ration between the genders (male: female) in Ado-Ekiti (75.0%:25.0%); Abeokuta (100.0%:0.0%); Akure (93.8%:6.2%); Ikeja (94.6%:5.4%); Ibadan (78.6%:21.4%); Osogbo (80.0%:20.0%).<em> </em>There were significant differences between male and female involvement in land procurement (&chi;<sup>2 </sup>=130.507) and housing construction (&chi;<sup>2</sup>=53.019)<em> </em>while building design and approval (&chi;<sup>2</sup>=115.893), housing finance provision (&chi;<sup>2</sup>=51.031) and building materials acquisition (&chi;<sup>2</sup>=27.873) were otherwise.
