Abstract In Nigeria the responsiveness of government-built apartments to marital arrangements is yet to be adequately examined. This study evaluates household density among seven marital status categories in multifamily apartments developed by Lagos State Development and Property Corporation LSDPC. Occupants marital statuses were collected using a sample of 582 7.5 from 7764 population. The result reveals that married just-single widower and divorced categories were dominant. Furthermore a chi-square test shows that at 95 confidence level marital status has no significant effect on dwelling density among all the apartments investigated. Therefore LSDPC should be interested in the policy implications of these outcomes.
